1. Go to google

2. Search for TRUECRYPT

3. Download and install TRUECRYPT for the drive

4. Voila, flash drive secured


I am assuming you are only using one computer with the flash drive. if you use multiple, this wont work.

There are several options just go to google and search for SECURE FLASH DRIVE, FLASH DRIVE LOCK DOWN, PASSWORD PROTECT FLASH DRIVE

google

Here's what you have to do to Password Protect your USB Flash Drive:

Step 1.

Start with an empty Flash Drive. Download and install TrueCrypt from www.truecrypt.org Click 'create volume' to create a standard TrueCrypt volume. Click 'select device' - choose your USB flash drive, click it, then choose OK.

Step 2.

Click 'next' to see the encryption options (algorithms) you can use, click 'next' to accept the volume size, then enter a password. (Make sure its something easy for you to remember, yet
virtually impossible for others to guess!)

Step 3.

Move your mouse over the 'next dialogue' to set a random starting point for the TrueCrypt encryption, then click 'format' to format the flash drive. (If you have any preexisting data on the flash drive copy it to your hard-drive right now).

Step 4.

To access the Flash Drive click 'select device' in TrueCrypt and chose the flash drive. Select 'mount' enter your password and the Flash Drive will now appear in explorer Click 'dismount' to
remove the drive.

You have now password protected (and encrypted) your USB Flash Drive to stop others from accessing your sensitive data.
