HDD Safeguard – Password protection software external drive

USB external drives are incredibly useful tools for any computer users, but they can also pose something of a security risk. The files you store on these removable drives can be freely accessed by anyone that has physical access to the drive and this means that if you leave it unattended you run the risk of your private files falling into the wrong hands. As well as taking better care of your hardware another way to help protect your files is to grab a copy of HDD Safeguard.

Just one click to lock the drive

This is a tiny program (only 100Kb) that simply needs to be copied into place – there is no need for installation – and it enables you to add password protection to your USB external drive. Once this has been done, the drive is effectively locked until the correct password is entered. That is really all there is to it. This is an excellent example of a simple program that does its job well and does so without drawing attention to itself.

User friendly

There are no complicated settings to concern yourself with, all that’s needed is for a password to be set up. Once the drive is locked, one cannot read nor write any data to it without the correct password and the fact that the software is compatible with all versions of Windows means that it is ideal for anyone who works with a number of different computers.

Works with all drives up to 16 Terabyte

The free version of the program can be used with USB external drives with a capacity of up to 4GB, but if you want to work with larger drives, you will have to invest in the regular version; this enables you to secure drives of up to 16TB in size.


Simple and effective, this is a great security tool that helps to protect your data.
