Howdy:

Not so sure you can protect the drive but you can restrict access to the files and folders on it.

Seeing as though this is an external hdd, did you give any thought of simply unhooking it and putting it somewhere?

Yeah I have thought about simply removing the HD itself, would have just been easier to protect it with a Password but if it aint possible then I can restrict the files

Thank you

Never used it myself, so I don't know how good it is/isn't or how it works, but you can try CleverCrypt Lite.
