Multiple Users - Password Security

I have family members who all use the same computer. I have a WD My Book Essential external hard drive.

I am running Windows XP operating system.

I have a password for security to this drive.

Once I open the drive, the other users have access to my information if the log in while I am still on the computer.

Is there a setting that allows me to use my hard drive and not allow others access without logging off my account?

Not at this moment.

The drive will be locked if disconnected or user if logged off.

Thanks for the reply.

Sorry, that’s means if I want to share my HD with friends I just can’t?

Like, create a user and different password.

admin - password1

friend1 - password2

family - password3

If i do format and make a partition, does it work?

Tanks anyway
