comment Locking a partition/drive
Is the someone else logging on with a different set of credentials? If so, then you might not need to encrypt, just set permissions to the files. (An administrator of the PC can still read them, hence you might still need to encrypt)

comment Full disk encryption configuration
You should make sure that your operating system is set up not to run programs automatically when a USB stick is inserted. (all modern operating systems have this feature turned off out of the box, so your new computer will be OK).

comment Identify ip address of the machines that accessing another machine in LAN
By the way, netstat will work regardless of the protocol unless they're using something very weird: I'm asking about the protocol in my comments above because it may mean there's an easier way to get the information you need.

comment Identify ip address of the machines that accessing another machine in LAN
Whew, if I wasn't being clear before I doubt that alphabet soup helped. :-) So, another way to put it, what software do they use on their computer to access these files? Is it a web browser? Windows Explorer? Something scary on a command line? Also, what operating system is on both ends? Windows? OSX? Linux?

comment Identify ip address of the machines that accessing another machine in LAN
My bad, not being clear. I mean what protocol are they using? Is it Windows File Sharing? Web downloading? FTP? SCP? SFTP? Appletalk? NIS? WebDav? rcp? rsync? Bittorrent?

comment Identify ip address of the machines that accessing another machine in LAN
What kind of file transfer? (There are lots!) Reason for asking, by the way, is that if it's a specific service that's being used, you may be able to get useful information from the management tool for that service. For example, if it's Windows file transfer (SMB) then you can run fsmgmt.msc and it will list who has active connections.

comment How to find if a user has connected another HD via SATA or IDE?
Are you trying to remotely detect what hardware is currently installed in a machine? Or do you have the machine and are trying to detect if hardware has previously been installed and later removed?

comment Setting up Relays in Windows
That's really a networking/OS question, not a security one - better to ask on SuperUser?
