I know there are a lot of good programs that will allow you to encrypt part or even all of the files/folders on a portable HDD. I am looking for a simple way to password protect the whole HDD so that if it is attached to any computer, a password is needed to access it. I know that is not as 'good' as encryption', but that is all I need. TIA.

I use Macs. I use a flash drive to carry powerpoint presentations and other documents that I need to access on PC's running various flavours of Windows, which are not mine and I will not have administrator access to. Is there a way that I can protect/encrypt the drive in a way that will let me use it on both systems, without having to pre-install software on the Windows system? I do not need government-grade encryption, just something that will stop casual snoopers accessing the data if I lose the drive.
