Question about PNY 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive - Blue/Black
I was wanting to know how to password protect the data on a 8G PNY Attache jump drive.
Yes, and Perfectly too.
What you should do is,
depending on your operating system,
Right-Click on 'My Computer Icon', then select 'Manage'.
When you get to Computer Management page,
Click on Disk Management on left hand side,
This will display ALL the disks installed on your system, either partitioned or not partitioned, formatted or not formatted.
Then go to the ones that are hidden, not created, or not displayed, right-click on it, then you'll see different actions that you can perform.
Also, in some instances, what you just need to do when you get to this page is to assign a new, distinct, drive letter apart from the ones already in use on the system.
This will automatically bring out the hidden drives.
Hope I have helped you out.

It is true that locking mobile storage devices, such as USB drives, with Imation Lock is an excellent way to protect your data.
However, using Imation Lock with a Kingston USB drive can create problems.
Learn how to unlock your Kingston USB drive so you can use it once again.
Ensure that your Kingston USB drive has been removed from your computer's USB port.
Start the Imation Lock software by double clicking the Imation Lock.
Plug in the Kingston USB into a USB port immediately after the "Please Insert the Device or Run This Utility as Privileged User" message appears.
Access your Kingston USB drive by clicking Start > Computer.
Double click on the device.
Start the Imation Lock software again by double clicking the Imation Lock.
Disable the password protection by clicking the open lock icon.
If you have password protected a USB drive or partition on your computer and have since forgotten the password, you will need to completely erase the drive.
Erasing and reformatting the drive will remove any password protection, software and data on the drive preventing you from accessing the drive.
The process is simple using Window's Disk Management utility.
Log into the computer as the administrator.
Open the Windows Start menu, select "Run," type "Compmgmt.msc" and click "OK." In Windows Vista and Windows 7, simply type the command into the "Search" field.
Select "Disk Management."
Locate the password-protected drive.
Right-click it and select "Delete." Confirm the action.
The drive will be erased and become unallocated free space.
Hope this helps.
