    I want to set a password to my Harddrive of computer. I also do not know how does it help to keep hard drive secure.
    Also please suggest a freeware for folder lock (other than folderlock software).

    this is set via the bios
    as the PC starts it should flash on the screen for a few seconds how to get to the bios/setup
    often at this point you press a key to enter
    depending on make an model of your PC
    could be <F2>or <F10> or <Del> or another key

    In the bios will be a section, probably security to set a bios / harddrive password
    in some cases just setting the bios also sets the harddrive
    BUT
    if you forget the harddrive password - remember if you forget the password , you will not be able to access the harddrive , even if you put it into a different pc
