    How to Password Protect a USB Pen Drive?

    Does anyone know how??

    Got a pen drive for work, and for extra peace and mind, would like to get it password protected?

    None of this free trial rubbish where you end up paying for it in the end!

    TIA

    np
    Really easy to use, just don't put the encryption too high as it will slow it down, try twofish to start with

    Depending on what usb drive you have you may be able to set it up with U3 software???

    I knew somebody would mention U3 :giggle:

    Personally I didn't like u3 (bit pants IMO)
    Doesn't work on all drives, but here is where you can find the installer/un-installer:
    u3.com/uni…ll/

    Try these Portable apps too:, will work on a 1Gb drive

    This is far better than U3. I have both but prefer postableapps.

    I removed U3 in favour of portable apps!
