I was wondering ok you know how if a hard drive is taken out of the computer it can be read and written to mainly written to or if a drive containg a boot partition or os is put in the computer the drives in that computer can be accessed by say a rouge disk or rouge usb or whatever was wondering because someone copuld easily then copy a virus or somthin to the computer right? so I was wondering is there a way to lock the drive so that only when I sign on can any of the drives be written to. also I have a Samsung 960 nvme / m.2 drive how would I secure that from such attack. now while not all that important I was curios about this, after looking for a new hard drive to purchase I ran across a drive on newegg that said something like Seagate secure. not sure if I can post the newegg link here or even if there is an affordable self encrypting drive that denies being written to accept when logged in or whatever. is this model number really a self encrypting drive Seagate BarraCuda ST1000DM010 does self encypting drives have reduced speed?
