    How to lock a external hard drive.

    I have a external hard drive, but I want to lock it against access to all others.

    I have been using Nautilus' properties sections but I cant seem to lock the hard drive this way. Can you help me, also tell me about good encrypting programs.

    No advise on encryption methods but, for limiting access -> that is a linux strong point !
    "chown" on ANY directory you want such that only you may access it;
    Code:
    man chown
