WD Elements Ext Hard-drive - Windows 10 - security

  Pinklady1967 00:20 27 Jan 2019


I have just bought a WD Elements 1.5tb external hard-drive and want to set it up with a password. I have installed the WD security software, but this HD isn't appearing on the screen where you click on the item you want to create a password for. I'm using Windows 10 and don't know if that is the reason why it isn't allowing me to proceed with the security or quite what.

Can anyone tell me how to set up password protection for this item please?

Thanks, Kim.
