Introduction
Congratulations on becoming an owner of the
Samsung External Hard Disk Drive with SecretZone.
You made an excellent choice and we hope you will
enjoy all its capabilities.
SecretZone allows you to create multiple virtual drives
on the Samsung External Hard Disk Drive.
Samsung‟s SecretZone protects important files and
data in the form of software-based 128-bit AES, 256bit AES, and Blowfish 448 encryption. The external
drive owner's data is also locked with a password
which ensures data security. In addition to the
freedom of knowing that your data is secure, you can
transfer your secured data from one Samsung
External Hard Disk Drive to another. No more
transporting information on a memory stick that can
be easily lost, stolen, or misplaced.

Handling Precautions
The following are precautions that must be
followed to enjoy a long Samsung External Hard
Disk Drive life.
NOTE: PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL
THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS BEFORE
PROCEEDING TO USE TOUR SAMSUNG
EXTERNAL HARD DISK DRIVE
Regular Virus Scanning
Frequently scan the device for viruses and
protect the device from virus infection.
Safely Remove Hardware
Always use the Safely Remove Hardware
feature before shutting down the Samsung
External Hard Disk Drive or disconnecting the
USB cable.

Terms and concepts
Idle Timeout
As long as the Samsung External Hard Disk
Drive is receiving input or doing a task, the
drive is 'active'. When there is no activity for a
set period of time, the drive becomes 'inactive'.
When the drive is 'inactive' it is called 'Idle'
and the drive will come to a 'rest'. You set the
'Idle Timeout' to start when there has been no
activity for a period of time by entering a time
in this field. For instance, if you want the drive
to rest if there has been no activity for 10
minutes, you would enter a '10'' in the Idle
Timeout field. After 10 minutes of inactivity,
the drive would come to a rest until it detects
activity again.
Partition
Most operating systems, such as Windows NT
or Windows XP, allow users to divide a hard
disk into multiple partitions, in effect making
one physical hard disk into several smaller
logical hard disks.
There are many reasons to partition a hard
drive but the most widely used is to have one
partition that contains all of the programs and
one partition that contain all the data. Using
this type of partitioning makes backing up your
data much easier since it is all contained on
one partition. As well, if the operating system
has any problems, it is much easier to format
and reinstall the operating system.
Partitions are identified by a drive alpha name
like the "C" drive or the "G" drive.
File Systems
A File System is how the computer keeps track
of where all the files are on the disk. Like a
Table of Contents, the File System on a
Samsung SecretZone User Manual Ver 2.0

Terms and concepts
computer is referenced whenever you look for,
or write to, a file Types of File Systems are
FAT16, FAT32, and NTFS. The following will
give a brief explanation of each Filing System's
Pros, Cons, and the primary audience for the
File System.
FAT16
FAT is an abbreviation for File Allocation Table.
The FAT file system is straightforward and is
supported by most existing operating systems
for personal computers. This makes it an ideal
format for solid-state memory cards and a
convenient way to share data between
operating systems.
TABLE 1. Pros and Cons of FAT16
Pros
Cons
Used Mostly For:
Can read/write on
most operating
systems (Windows
and Macintosh).
If you lose power while
working, you may
corrupt the FAT and you
take a chance of losing
your data.
Non-IT
environments. More
for home or
individual use.
File transfer using a
disk is more probable
since file sizes must
be smaller than with
NTFS
Can only be partitioned
up to 2 gigabytes.
Samsung SecretZone User Manual Ver 2.0
10
Terms and concepts
FAT32
FAT32 is used to create much larger partitions
than what you can with FAT16.
NOTE: FOR THE SAMSUNG SECRETZONE,
THE MAXIMUM FILE SIZE IS 2 GIGABYTES.
TABLE 2.
Pros and Cons of FAT32
Pros
Cons
Can read/write on

More for home or

NOTE: THE FAT32 FILE SYSTEM LIMITS THE
SIZE OF ANY FILE ON THE DRIVE TO A
MAXIMUM OF 4GB. TO ENSURE RELIABLE
OPERATION UNDER FAT32, SECRETZONE
LIMITS EACH VIRTUAL DRIVE'S SIZE TO A
MAXIMUM OF 2GB. WINDOWS PC OWNERS
WHO WISH TO UTILIZE CAPACITY
GREATER THAN 2GB SHOULD REFORMAT
THEIR EXTERNAL SAMSUNG DRIVE TO

Terms and concepts
NTFS
NTFS is an abbreviation for Windows NT File
System or is sometimes called New Technology
File System. If you are familiar with using
paper files, the same concept applies here.
NTFS is the way in which the operating system
(Windows NT, XP, etc) organizes the files on
the drive. NTFS is quite secure and robust. It
provides security by supporting access control
and ownership privileges, meaning you can set
permission for groups or individual users to
access certain files.

Used Mostly For:

files over 4 gigabytes

or drives that are 137
gigabytes and larger
Limited maintenance

Partition/Hard Drive

Volume
A drive Volume is simply the name that you
give to a partition. It is often referred to as the
Volume Name. So, let's say that you have two
partitions; one is for your programs and one is
for your data. The partition for your programs
may be called PROGRAMS C:. The drives
volume name is then PROGRAMS C:.
Samsung SecretZone User Manual Ver 2.0
12
Terms and concepts
Volume Image
The Volume Image is the contents of the
volume. So the Programs C: volume contains
all of your programs. The Image of that volume
would be all of your programs.
Virtual Drive
A virtual drive is a part of the whole drive. So,
for instance, if you create a new Volume and
name it the "G" drive, that has now become a
virtual drive. Since the whole Hard Disk Drive
is also called a drive, when you create a
partition you also call that a drive - but it is not
the whole Hard Disk Drive, it is only a part (or
volume) on the Hard Disk Drive. So, just as a
room in your house is not the whole house, a
virtual drive on a Hard Disk Drive is not the
whole drive.
