If the hacker has physical access to a standard mass storage device (hard disk drive, USB drive, optical disk) then there is no easy way to stop them accessing/duplicating any of the encrypted data on it. You can slow them down which is essentially what encryption does.

You should understand Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2, e.g. at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIPS_140-2. It specifies four levels of security for encrypted systems. What you want sounds like level 2, 3 or 4 which is serious stuff.

Windows has BitLocker which can provide level 1 protection:

Here's an example of an encrypting drive to meet level 2:
