Encrypting a folder/directory instead of whole drive

I am planning to buy My Passport Essential drive for PC. But before that, I want to make sure whether I can encrypt one section of disk or not. From the stie, I gather that I can encrypt entire Drive using WD SmartWare. I actually want to encrypt few particular directories in drive for private data against external access.

HI there!!

You’ll need another software rather than Smartware if you only want to encrypt sections of the drive.
