SecuraDrive Software

Utilizing the SecuraDrive application software, you are able to partition your pocket drive into both a "Public (open)" and a "Secure Area (password protected)" area:

Public Area
There is no password protection applied to this area. You may perform any basic standard functions in this area.

Security Area
This area cannot be accessed without inputting the password you set. Once logged in, the device will be switched from "Public Area" to "Security Area". After successfully switching, you may perform any basic functions.

After connecting the SecuraDrive FM-HWS80U2 to your computer system, launch the security software: Open My Computer > Access your SecuraDrive > Double-click on the Security Software
