|Like trvlr I'm wondering about your context. Has someone pulled a drive (or drives, plural) from your NAS and copied it in the past? Is this a serious concern or just a bit of over cautiousness on your part? |
In any case, why would you copy the drive when you could just steal it and take it with you to hack at your leisure. While I personally despise thieves, I've known a few in my life and if any one of the people I knew way back in the day wanted your data, they'd just steal your whole NAS. Not spend a rather lengthy period of time pulling the drive, attaching it to a laptop and then copying the disk and finally, putting it back. LOL Makes no sense....grab the NAS and leave.....go after the data at your leisure in the safety of a place you won't get caught doing so.
Regardless, no, file security won't stop someone from copying your drive. In fact, I can't think of anything that will. Encrypting the entire drive (or drives) would prevent someone from accessing the data after stealing and/or copying the data. But in the end, you can't prevent someone from actually copying the hard disk.
Perhaps if you actually explain what it is you're hoping to achieve, and your reasoning for going there. We may be able to find a way to help you get there.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
