Hi all, I just got a usb 80gb portable harddrive not long ago for my work stuff.

I move around alot to show my works to people but I am a careless person too... always leaving things behind.

I am wondering is that any software that can lockup my entire 80gb drive and prompt for password when ever I plug in to a new computer?

I tried a few software in the market but they are either virtual drive (small size) or only lock folder and files only.

Please recommend me a good software.

Thanks.

My Western Digital USB drive came with a utility for this. Have you checked with the manufacturer of the drive?

There are other freeware solutions out there - bt they're generally (IMO) not as well implemented as the manufacturer's solution.
