Ipod 5 - Data Protection Enabled: An Encrypted Carrying Case?  Even Word Files?

oaktrees asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-19
I need to update some Microsoft Word files on a Windows PC in the morning at my office and then carry the same files home at night where I may make some small changes, also on a Windows PC system.  Want to use an encrypted, non-cloud physical drive to carry the files between the two computers.  So that, if I lose the drive it can't be read.

Is my Ipod 5 with Data Protection Enabled an encrypted device?  Seems like it is?  But, am I right?  Would Word files saved to the Password Protected Ipod 5 with Data Protection enabled also be encrypted?  

If yes, how robust is the encryption?
