Easiest way is using using folder with security changed for specified user:

or if you want to be safer you can use opensource truecrypt

You can use Truecrypt to fully encrypt your partition. It will remain visible in disk management but from Windows (I assume that is your OS), you will only see an 'unformatted' drive - be careful: it is not, it is a Truecrypt encrypted volume. Users that do not know the password cannot mount this encrypted partition. Before you start encryption with Truecrypt, backup data so you don't loose any. To store data from your IP cameras, you have to logon and mount the Truecrypt volume first.

To encrypt a partition (volume) start Truecrypt and press the Create Volume button and select Encrypt a non-system partition/drive. Then choose Standard Truecrypt volume. At 'Volume Location', select your partition that you want to encrypt. After that select 'Encrypt Partition in place', to keep your data. In case your partition is not NTFS formatted, you will get a message telling you what to do. Follow the wizard from here and your partition will be encrypted. When it's finished, use Truecrypt again to mount the image. You can test the encryption process with an USB drive if you want.
