Hello guys,

I have PGP encryption on my laptop, i have encrypt my entire HD ( companys policies ) so everytime i log i have a user/pass for pgp.
Now i have an extrernal HD and i need to encrypt it too. I will use the same application that is on my pc to encrypt it? When i will encrypt the external HD with PGP that means that external HD will ONLY work on my pc , right ?
