How do I easily protect data on a usb stick

  Halmer 08:38 02 Nov 2008

I've had a quick look on Google but all of the free programs seems fairly complicated to install and use.

Does anyone use a program that is simple to install and use?

Do I install it on to my hard drive or the usb stick?

I have it on my HDD and I have found it very good.

Just spotted the quick guide sorry.

I don't know if you realise but when the files are Encrypted you can right click and select "Rename" and it will give them random number and letter names.

is never to let the stick out of your sight, or to lock it away somewhere safe.

Don't give it to a Government employee or anyone contracted to work/courier for them.

Just got this stick with 300,000 individuals' bank details on it so thought I'd better be careful ;-)

For gods sake don't lose it, all encryptions are crackable, and I don't want to see you in the papers like many others recently.It's best in the company safe.
