Just curious how I would go about encrypting an internal disk drive taken out of a broken computer? I have the appropriate cables to access the drive on other computers, but would like to Encrypt the data on there as I now have a "floating" hard drive that can easily be stolen. Thanks!

The disk is from an old laptop. I believe it was Windows XP....

Sorry, I mean what OS do you use on the PC you will be using it on now? The reason I ask is that Windows 8/8.1 has a built in encryption utility called BitLocker that is very easy to use. Or alternatively, you can use an encryption utility that you download from the internet. Something like this: http://www.axantum.com/AxCrypt/ should work nicely.
