Just make sure to format the drive first and to change E to the current drive letter of your drive.

Or just search for other tools for Windows and/or other operating systems. I'm not sure if that will work, but either way, it seems a hassle to me and you might miss a file or two, or even a metadata in one or more of those files.

Okay, so if the external HDD is something like drive 'F', just make sure to run the command [cipher /w:F:\], correct? I wouldn't wanna do that to my actual E drive, that is my storage drive with my fansubs and music lol
