    Password Protecting a Hard-Drive
    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.

    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 ?

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
