Hello,
I have to password protect an external hard-drive. I've read how to do it in disk utility. A lot of people suggest creating a disk image. Can someone explain exactly what a disk image is? I want to do this correctly so I really need a very simple explanation of how to do this.
Thanks!

Let's take a step back ....
Password protecting a hard drive is a solution to a problem.

What is the problem ... maybe there are other options .
Also what OS do you have ?

Cheers ... McBie

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
