Any free software for password protecting external drive?


In the zone
Hi Guys,

I have got a foreign made external MINI STATION hard disk, the details of it is given below. The password software for the above, given on the seller’s own website on the net, does not work. So, I would like to install a FREE SOFTWARE which should enable me to lock and unlock the external hard disk completely for my personal use only.


I have got Windows7. I may uninstall it and reinstall the same or any new latest OS for any purpose. Will the password ,which was already given on my external hard disk, work or not?

The only tool that comes to my mind is TrueCrypt but [STRIKE]I vaguely remember that the project[/STRIKE] was discontinued a while ago.

VeraCrypt is a fork of TrueCrypt that is still active: *
