I'm using 2nd copy to back up my media & Acronis for OS iso if it makes a difference.
If you are using Seven Ultimate, you could use Bitlocker. Right click the drive in Computer window, choose Turn on Bitlocker.

Be sure to print the encryption key sheet!

I dont see this when you right click?

Do I need to go into properties? (I did, but I just didnt know where to go/didnt see anything?)

You should see the Bitlocker option when you right click the drive icon. Notice that Bitlocker is included only in Ultimate edition, Home and Professional editions don't have Bitlocker.

Yeah I only have Pro, so no bitlocker I guess?

What other 3rd party options do I have for top ofthe line security?
