Are you sure that your pen drive doesnot come with a security software itself.most drives like this come with a security software that you can install and use it. Check with the company were you bought the product.

Another suggestion is to have your files zipped using winzip and password protect it before moving to pen drive. WIll that work for you ?

Noting to scare you catalini.. any protection can be broken if it has to be broken.. Winzip could be the easiest but there is always the factor of 'break the password , you break the law' involved..

Did you check my other software suggestion

have you checked with the company from were you got this product

my pen drive is an oem version... no way to find it online. i checked your software, but it's not free and not really what i'm looking for. the software i search should format the pendrive in a specific way, so that it could only be read after using a password. bestcrypt is a good one, but it needs to be installed every time on the host computer. I'm looking for something that runs directly on the usb pen drive. thanks :-)
