I would use something "like" true crypt It also encrypts the HDD. This adds an extra layer of protection. I have never tried, But I think that if a drive is just password protected and not encrypted that you may be able to mount that drive in Linux and still see the contents.

There are other progs that will also do this, But this is the way I would do it.

 

USE AT OWN RISK.
