    Hi,

    I am looking for an app in which I can password protect/encrypt all of my external hard drives with sensitive data without having to reformat them.
    Can anyone recommend a good app that will work for this?

    macOS? The OS will do this, you don’t need an app.

    Thank You!
    I will give that a shot and see if it works with my external HD.

    I didnt realize I had to enable it in Preferences.
