Can I use cryptomator to encrypt external hard drive?

I have a password protected western digital external drive, I used western digital’s software to password protect it but the problem is that I can only unlock it on windows devices. I was wondering if I can use cryptomator instead to encrypt my drive, then be able to unlock it on both mac and windows.

I heard also about veracrypt, but it seems less secure? although it’s build for local drives.

  1. You can use a utility for Linux to apply the password and unlock the drive:

    [https://github.com/0-duke/wdpassport-utils](https://github.com/0-duke/wdpassport-utils)

    Once you figure out the parameters, I have been using this many timesbefore and it works with MyBook etc.

    sudo ./wdpassport-utils.py -d /dev/sdc -u

    Where sdc is your device (can find out from e.g. “Disks”Linux utility)

    and -u tells utility that it will then prompt you for password.

    Be aware if you see a long error message it’s because you tried the command on a sleeping drive. Try utility again a few seconds after you hear drive spin-up IF it was sleeping up to that point.

    BUT NEVER EVER EVER AGAIN use the WD protection.

    WD can always access your data.

    If drive fails, your data is gone.

    Protection is not strong enough.

  2. I use both veracrypt and cryptomator, they both work well with windows and mac. In your case I think you should use veracrypt, it would be faster. I use cryptomator for single archives that need to be updated, like backups on the cloud, so you can make a simple differential update

  3. Veracrypt is widely known and also open source. It’s based on TrueCrypt. Why do you think it’s less secure?

    I have never heard of cryptomator. But seems ok. Just like Veracrypt. I think the difference is how to use it. From just glancing at it cryptomator encrypts the individual files. That way 3rd party can still see how many files you have and how large they are. But that assumption is mostly based on a single screenshot from their website.

    And yes, good idea to get away from WD software. I would not trust it. At all.
