USB Drive Encryption

  RE1772 13:05 22 Nov 2008


Like most, I use a multitude of USB thumb drives and external drives.

Can anyone recomend a decent (& cheap) portable encryption application that does not need to install on the local machine?

I have Steganos Security Suite and the portable drive app is great, but it needs to install something on my work machine - for which i do not have the correct privaledges.

Yep, that's what I use too.

To use on a flash drive, without installing on the host system, see click here & also at click here under 'Q: How can I use TrueCrypt on a USB flash drive?' G
