External hard drive password protection without installation
by cactus75 - 7/7/13 12:52 AM
I would be grateful for any advice on buying a small portable 2.5" external hard drive that is password protected and/or offers secure storage of data via encryption.
I will need to use the external drive in my workplace - where the computers have network restrictions - i.e. can't install software or run exe files. So I am looking for an external hard drive that has: a) software already installed on it which asks for a password to access data, and b) Does not require that software to be installed on each PC that the drive is connected to.
The following is an example of something I have looked at - although Buffalo support were not helpful in getting back to me on whether the password software needs to be physically installed on each machine.
Any recommendations would be gratefully received.
