How do I protect the data on my hard drive so that if the drive removed (stolen), data will be inaccessible?

I saw that you can use Microsoft's EFS encryption but it said files would be decrypted if moved off the drive. I am looking for a solution that will protect the drive if someone tries to mount it on another machine. Thanks!

    Your best bet is a hammer and a hard surface. Take out your aggression on the hard drive and you won't have to worry about your data being compromised ;-)

    encrypt it using a encryption software. Check out for some free encryption software. but use them wisely as if you forget how to decrypt them you might end up in trouble.
