Hi.

Encryption is used for hard drives as a measure of security. Also, the files that have been encrypted cannot be accessed by any other person and remain encrypted until and unless the user accesses them. The software is available for free as well chargeable.

The external hard drive encryption software Apple OS X disk encryption is available for free. To start the encryption,

1) On the desktop, right-click on the drive

2) Among the options provided, click on the encrypt option

3) A window will open asking you to input the password that you wish to set for the encryption

4) Verify the password typed, give the password hint and click on Encrypt disk

5) The encryption process will take about an hour or so. Before the process completes, do not close the drive

6) To check if the encryption has been done, right-click on the drive and click on get info

7) If encrypted, it will show encrypted written below the drive description

8) To remove the encryption, right-click on the drive and click on decrypt

Hope we helped.
