    Hi, im not too computer savy, i was just wondering if there was a way to maybe password a 2nd drive on a system to keep important files etc from being acessed by friends/family. I share my computer alot, and i'd rather make my 2nd drive a sort of personal drive for myself that cannot be used by just anyone.

    You could also use a program like Hide Files & Folders that will hide folders and password protect them.
