    Password protect portable external hdd

    I recently brought a seagate backup plusexternal portable hdd 1tb.so it doesnt have any password protect feature so i got this idea.I decided to install ubuntu like a portable os on it and then copy files from windows and make it as back up hdd.In this way i can protect files from others and also there wont be much virus.since i am beginner does this work practically and will it keep safe from others.also can I connect it to othet computer and boot it from usb and use as regulard hdd like minilaptop carrying on.I will make entire 1 tb in ubuntu file format instead of nfts.since ubuntu file.format works both ways.I do know about trucrypt but i fell like this is more secure and advantegous And would be prone to virus.so are they any disadvantages
