I would like to have a software that can automatically delete the whole data in an external HDD or Thumb drive should other ppl access into it?

Or is there any software that can detect and inform me if other person accessed into my External HDD or Thumb drive should the person stolen it and access into it from different location but with an internet connection?

Thanks in advance

Instead of that, consider drive encryption, such as Truecrypt.

Free and works with thumb drives.

yeah you can go for disk encryption tools or also you can search for some self destruction programs
