    Anyone know of a thumb drive for windows 7 that offers security protection. Such as password protection for the thumb drive. PNY offered this in XP.
    Or a way to password protect files in windows 7?

    Thanks,

    David

    Although it does not come on the thumb drive, this is what I use:PasswordProtect USB You can mount it on your computer hard drive as well as your thumb drive.
    Thanks John

    Another good one is TrueCrypt. Or you can get Verbatim USB drive, which comes with Vsafe.

    A simple Google search shows many sites that discuss password protecting Flash Drives.

    I have a WD My Passport 320gb and set it up that way. I don't install the program just open win explorer and start the unlock.exe
    My smaller Sandisk Cruzer Micro U3 is also

    Google is great, but it is always comforting to hear what someone is using now, likes and has had little problem with. This is what most of my posts offer.
    BTW, I only post when I have time and have information that I believe is helpful.
    Not that you do not do this, but "ALMOST" everyone has used or can use Google.

    The key is to search using the right terms, and this is what is sometimes difficult. There is so much info on Google that finding what you want is the trick. That's why if I find a search that actually points to this info I post it. I also find that researching a problem and the solution helps me to learn that solution better. By showing sites to do that research perhaps the original OP will learn the info and remember it over a longer term. We see threads quite often about a poster who can not remember how to do something. Perhaps this research will solve that problem as well.
