You can try giving the drive different permissionsq

by Slayer_ In reply to HDD protection

Give the drive only permissions to a specific user account, it can be limited or admin, doesn't matter. Just make sure it is the only one with permissions. Then when you try to open it, right click the drive and say open as, and enter the user name and password of the account that has the permissions.

However, if the account you are using currently is an Admin, it would be really easy to reset the permissions on these drives so that anyone can access them.

depending on how much data is on the partitions it could take a long time for all of the files/folders to inherit the security settings made on the drive (partition).
