USB Safeguard is a portable software program to encrypt and protect data with a password on your removable pen drives using the AES 256 bits encryption.
The main purpose of using a USB pen drive is that you can bring your data with you wherever you go. But if you lose your USB pen drive your data also lose.
This is dangerous if you have confidential files stored in it. Protect the pen drive with a password. USB Safeguard offers users (novice and expert) a friendly yet extremely powerful security solution that fully protects valuable data stored on USB pen drives.
Also, the program has a useful feature that allows you to enter your email or phone if you lose the pen drive. Free version works only with USB Flash drive of size max 2 GB
Why do you get a "The disk is write protected" error when attempting to transfer files to USB flash drive?
Permissions in the PC may have restricted writing files to the USB flash drive. Disabling restrictions should fix this issue.
WARNING: Backup your registry before editing.
STEP 1 - Backup the registry
1. Unplug the USB flash drive.
2. Click Start > Run, type in regedit then click OK.
3. From the registry menu, click File, select Export.
4. Under Export range select All.
5. Name the file backup.reg and save it to the desktop.
STEP 2 - Disable the "Write Protect" permission in the Registry
1. On the left pane, click the "+" beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
2. Navigate to SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > StorageDevicePolicies.
3. On the right pane, right-click on WriteProtect and select Modify.
4. In the Value data field, type the number 0
5. Click OK.
On USB stick, there is a "Lock/Unlock" slide bar on the
opposite end of USB port. It uses the symbols of a "lock" and an "open
hasp lock" to show that the device is "locked" (write-protected) or
"unlocked" or not write-protected. remove the lock
USB flash drives are made of a small amount of flash ram and usualy the size of a persons thumb.
the software that resides on them determins if the "disk volume" is write protected.
if a software program other than the native software that came with the drive has write protected "files" that exist on the drive you will need to find out the name of said program and follow the proceedures for changing the write protection of those files.
