Yeah, I know, it's supposed to be lots of software (free, or eventually available at Piratebay or something). But I'm tired of those, and can't find one doing what I ask for. :bawl: So this is what I ask for, maybe you guys have heard about some nice software..

I have a cheap 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive. What I want is: 1. To be prompted to enter a password every time one tries to open it, on any goddamn computer with any OS (at least XP and Vista)! 2. Please, don't let it be accessible from DOS or anything either, I want to be safe.. 3. I want to configure the password myself, of course 4. If possible, I would like not having to re-protect the drive every time I open or edit it, as that will be often... If I have to, that process should go fast...

I'm going to use the drive at school and home mostly, which means different computers and fellow-pupils-who-really-like-stealing-or-having-fun-with-other-people's-flash-drives

Please, any "How-To" or something would be greatly appreciated...

Bump for great justice!

I'm actually really interested in something like this as well. I want a complete password lockdown on my hard drive. I found a program once that allowed you to do that by putting every file into a specific format folder, but unfortunately, the program had to be installed on the computer trying to open the folder, which makes it impractical for any computer but my own.

After serious testing I found the full version of the software "Password Protect USB" very nice. Expensive, though, unless... Well... Anyway, if experiencing any problems on that-thing-we-all-know-what-is-that-cannot-be-discussed-in-this-forum, em@il me for a detailed description of how I did it.. Note that the version I can help people with works for me with an USB flash device and WinXP, and won't necessarily work on anything else... But check it out. It's a free trial around every corner of the internet.
