Windows 7: How do I encrypt and decrypt harddrive on computer boot?

How do I encrypt and decrypt harddrive on computer boot?

I'm looking for a way to secure my "files" hard drive (not my primary OS hard drive). I want something that would allow me to decrypt it on boot, with a decryption password of some type. It would then need to also encrypt again when shutting down.

Could anyone recommend a program for this? It would also be preferred if the separate actions had their own executable or way to be run from command line so I could use it with another project of mine, but this isn't required.

Thanks to anyone that can point me in the right direction!

Hi Danny,

I would recommend you try TrueCrypt.
