For that you will need an encryption software. If your drive did not come with any software by default (that is, for synchronization purposes or otherwise), then you can download one even for free. There is a wide range of choices depending on the brand of your USB drive. I'd suggest you search How can I password the usb drive in Google. If my suggestion helps you, please do rate me. Thanks.

Password reset asking foir insertion of floppy disc or usb flash drive#


You should have created a floppy-disk (or USB flash drive) after you initially defined the password, so that you can now use that device to "reset" the password.

Or, search for "Nordahl Offline Password" -- it's a bootable CD that can "blank" an existing password. Then, boot from the 'C:' drive, and leave the password field blank, and you will be able to login, and then set a more-memorable password, and you will be able to create that floppy-disk (or USB memory-stick).
