Volume Password Protection
 
hi,

is it possible to add a read/write password to a volume? i have an external usb hard-drive, and i want to password protect it (just in case its stolen :mad: ).

Yes. You can encrpt them and anyone want to read them must need to have the key and passphrase. However, I do not know whether there is a software package that can make the whole process transparent.
