View Full Version : Drive Security...
I added a slave drive to get more storage space. How do I go about locking a slave drive from other users and admins? I, as well as 3 others, have admin control and I need to keep the other admins out also.
XP Pro on a home pc.
An innovative approach is this one:
If the case is lockable and/or Intrusion Detection is enabled (thus notifying you of unauthorized internal access) you can use a keyed switch, much like a riding lawnmower uses, to splice into the slave HDD's Ground wire.
If the others can open the case, they could simply use a different Molex to get it going.
You'd need to turn the keyswitch ON before booting for it to be used, O/C, but if it was switched OFF, no one would even know there was another hard drive installed. Unless they could open the case...
Removeable disk tray or external box to house your drive.
Physical security is the name of the game.
