The main reason why you need to secure your local disk is to avoid unauthorized access to data.
You may create a login password but that will not stop people like me from getting to your files.
So I want to show you how to secure your drive using Windows BitLocker encryption.
I assume that you partitioned your system already i.e you have more than one Local Drive.
Then Right-click on the drive you wish to lock and click on “Turn on BitLocker”



Then check the box before “Use a password to unlock the drive”

Then type in your required password.
Then click next. 
Note: your password must contain an uppercase letter and numbers.
