Hey, friends! The day before yesterday, I did have purchased a new Samsung laptop since the old dell desktop had corrupted after having been used over three years. And I also want to know how I can deal with a 560GB old hard disk that has been used on this dell computer for only one year. Is it proper to keep using this old hard disk on my new computer? Is it still safe for holding some key data? Is there any other way to cope with this drive? Thanks in advance!

How to Encrypt a File or External Hard Drive Safely?

Situation1: Hey, friends there! I have had a great trip with my Seagate external hard drive and saved many precious videos, pictures and some files on this USB drive. But, I do know the valuable data stored on a drive also is able to be stolen by someone else and randomly spread over the internet. Therefore, I am just wondering whether it is possible to encrypt each of these drive stuffs or entire drive to avoid such information leaking issues. Do you have any idea to help add password to my external drive?
