They are very easy to delete in error if the link from SANTO57 is not what you want send me E-Mail address and I will send a copy its 1.3 meg .

Thanks SANTOS57 , but it costs $35. It's a limited trial version, 35 uses then pay. I have a copy of one from a previous USB (Swissbit) but it won't work on this drive(Disgo U3)

i have downloaded this prog from link i gave you (the link with the green arrow on it) and nowhere does it say the use is limited, there is a FUlL version that you pay for and i think that is the one you have looked at..

Q46. Is Folder Lock free or Shareware?
Folder Lock is NOT freeware! It’s shareware, which means 'try before you buy'. We give you a 35-use trial so that you can test the program and check whether it is useful for you or not. If you find it useful and want to keep it for an unlimited number of times without any kind of limitation, register your copy and get a full version downloaded via email in minutes

I have just used it a couple of times and have not been prompted in any way to upgrade or register or received any message to say how many goes i have left so i'm not sure whats going on..

A good freeware one to try is TrueCrypt. To encrypt an entire USB flash drive or only a TrueCrpyt container (on the faslh drive) click here & scroll down to Q: How can I use TrueCrypt on a USB flash drive?

boots2, what program are suggesting? G
