A memory Stick

Dear All,

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?

Many thanks and Happy New Year to all.

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.

    Hii sir pls help me mine kingstone data traveler 2gb is write protected so how shall i remove write protected?


    Copy all the files onto your 'C:' drive.
    Spend $9 to buy a new 2GB USB memory-stick.
    Copy the files to the new memory-stick.
    Take a sledge-hammer to the old memory-stick -- to prevent anybody else from reading your files.

    My memory stick is write protected...i cant add/delete files.


    CHECK if it is not physically protected, a small button/switch might be on the stick!
    THEN, try any other flash drive or memmory stick to locate the target problem (memorry stick, or usb port mulfunction or even security/driver issue).

    PLUS, there are some programes that might protect flash drives, check if u have any, and uninstall them, and make sure u have deleted ther HIDDEN system files located on the stick!

    gd luck.
