I have just bought a flash drive(1 GB)from U3 Smart. It allows me to password protect the drive to prevent access no matter what computer I plug it into. The security is achieved by partitioning a part of the drive which (presumably) holds the relevant security information. Is it possible for me to protect an external USB drive (250GB) with the same options - i.e. that it can be transferred to any machine and be readable only with the password? If the answer is yes, Where can I get the software to achieve this, please?
Thanks folks, I will have to evaluate these to ensure I can plug the protected drive into any computer and decrypt it... that seems to be the tricky bit. Some programmes either offer no protection away from the originalmachine, or require the software to be installed on each machine the drive is connected to. I will respond with any result.
