I have some private files on my notebook which I would like to hold on a memory stick. However , I would like to protect these files or indeed the whole memory stick from others. Is there a way off protecting the data on the stick my means of a password?
I have a San Disk 4GB USB "Thumb Drive" that includes software to indeed encrypt the entire contents, not making it loadable without a password. I'm sure there are other utilities you can download that would do similar.
