Question about Kingston (DTIU3/2GB) 2 GB USB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Create a password

I have a Data Traveler 8 GB and it works well. I didn't need password protection but I do now.

How do I create a password? How do I do this? There doesn't seem to be a driver/program accessible from the flash stick. Do I need to re-format/erase all data?

Thanks
S.
