If you don't want to share the data on the external drive then why do you want to share it at all? Just get a second external for the other computer.

I can notput the hard-drive on a network
so does the auto usb share work just for printers or will work for hard-drive so all computers will have access to the data on the drive!

I need the data on more then one computer!

I need to be connet to it by USB base on Software!

I and swiching cable all day!

and that is not working well!

There is no reason why an External hard drive can't have restrictions on who can have access to it. Look in My Computer as sharing that drive. It is no different than any other storage device or drive in the system as far a sharing goes.

I think you need a primer on how to setup sharing. Click on the link below and read the MSoft article.
