Can anyone suggest FREE software for Linux (Ubuntu specifically) AND Windows that will prompt me for a password when I insert an external HDD of flash drive (thumb drive, memory stick, etc.)?
Please note, I’d rather not use encryption software, but I will if I can still run backup programs on the drive(s). And I definitely don’t want to use volumes. Ultimately, I simply want to plug in the USB drive or stick and voila, I’m prompted for a password before I or my backup software can proceed. Essentially, I think I’m looking for something to HIDE my folders and files.
Suggest anything, but please be SURE it meets my needs mentioned above. Or, if you think there’s a better way I’m all ears, but it can’t get in the way of my backups as they happen usually when my computer is unattended.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
