Win 8 and Hard Drives

Post by BenCasey »

Does anyone know if it is possible to restrict access to the various Hard Drives to User Logins?

If that is not possible, is it possible to somehow encrypt/protect drives other than the ones they are allowed to access. TrueCypt would allow password protected Volumes but they do not support Win8.

Thanks
Regards, Ben

For what it's worth, you can use BitLocker to encrypt a partition.

You can use security permissions to restrict access. Be very careful doing that so that you have at least one user account who can access all the drives.
