Run help and support, and type in encryption.

The hdd has to be formatted in NTFS (NOT FAT32), so u can use encryption.

And if u want permissions, u have to untick use simple file sharing.

Google for: Folder Guard Professional v7.6
I had a short try some time ago and found it very good.

Once you encrypt a file when you try to open it you will be prompted for the password you encrypted it with.

Right click the file you wish to encrypt, AxCrypt/encrypt follow the obvious instructions.
