    I have my slave drive as an NTFS backup. Only problem is I have things on there that I do not want other people to access. I know that you can set up a password to access the drive. Am I right in thinking that this is in an NTFS partition? And do you guys suggest anything? I just want it so that you double click on the drive, type in a password and then have access

    it is undoubtedly possible by no sharing of the disc with other users greetings.

    Cant do the password thing on the drive... but you can do the remove 'everyone' access to it and replace it with only your username and full access to it... Its what I do :D

    thats cool, but I do not want to encrypt the drive, just put a password on it. How do I remove the drive from everyone elses logins?

    Right click on the folders you are wanting to have limited access to and choose "Sharing and Security...". On the dialog thing that pops up, go to the Security tab. There you go. Choose the group that you want to edit and change their settings in the list at the bottom. If you want to really get into it, hit the Advanced button at the bottom.

    NOTE: Be careful about messin with this stuff. Microsoft implements "most restrictive" security on stuff like this. In other words, out of all the user groups you are in, it often takes the most restrictive policies that it can find that apply to you and uses those. One time, I almost locked myself out of one of my own folders. (forgot how i fixed it tho.) Just be careful. ;)

    Folder locker from the link above will let you put a password on the folder as you want
