    USB Flash Drive...

    does anyone know if there is some kind of security you could put on one of these drives.

    maybe like an index file that asks for a user name and password to access the data on the drive?

    I left mine on my desk over the week end and now there is some files missing from it. I dont know if people are just playing with me or if it was mallisous.

    I use it at work so its a windows environment. Can i format the drive and use the NTFS permissions???

    Guys got any ideas?

    I have a lexar one that came with some software that would create a hidden partition, accessible only by a password. However, I think it does somethign weird tot he partition table, cause it would not be accessible under linux. Works fine under Windows, though.
    Don't know if the software if lexar propietary or works with other drives.

    trickster, i emailed the company i got the usb drive from(sandisk) and asked if they had some way of securing data on the drive and they actually had somehting that worked and they actually got back to me in less than a day!!

    it works very similar to one of the links you r gave me but a little easier to use, but without your help i wouldnt know what to ask for so big ups to you !!!
