How to lock folder or file on External HDD?
hope the folder or file could not be opened from other pc also.
The best way is to use an encryption software. This will encrypt the folder and lock it via a password no matter what user/system tries to access it. WinRAR, and WinZIP also offers some encryption techniques. The best I've used was actually an updated windows folder encryption program.
If you're running a higher version of windows vista (business or ultimate) you could use the software that comes with windows to encrypt the folders. Though, I'd suggest looking around at different applications on the internet. www.google.com is the best place to start. If you have any questions on certain types of applications I can help with that later on. However, I'd suggest at least a 128bit encryption application as the encryption is very difficult to break. :)
Hope this helps bud!
