    I'm not 100% sure, but I think you should be able to set up user groups that would be able to access the drive on the network and then authentication for that usergroup would be on-access to the hard drive.

    if that isn't possible with windows you will have to look at installing additional software to achieve that

    ps> why don't you just make an ftp out of the computer that has the hdd in it, that way you have to enter user/pass for sure
