External USB HHD's show up as containing system info.
I use Folder Lock (great program) for data encryption and locking folders.
I have two external USB HHDs I use for backing up.
When I was running Vista the two USB drives would lock just fine.
They will not lock w/Win 7. I get a msg saying they contain system information and will not lock them. (As you would not want to lock drive C: because the computer would not be able to boot.)
I asked FL tech spt about it and they just want to sell me another program.
Anyone have any idea why these drives would read as having system info running under Win 7 and how to get them seen as a regular local drive?
