help usb flashdrive how to pass protect(16 posts)
And to be honest, if you want to protect a usb flashdrive you will want the data encrypted and not just have access to the drive password protected. Any hacker worth 1/2 their salt would be able to get around a password block and be able to see the contents of the drive (ie, they would not crack the password, they would just go around it). By encrypting the data, the information on the drive would not be readable without first entering the correct password. I think Jack7h3r1pp3rk1cks4$$ would be a good one for you ;-)
There are some flash drives that have builtin hardware-based encryption but they seem to be more expensive and harder to use from what I can tell from the prices and reviews for the drives at http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....encryption
I'm not sure though as I haven't used encryption due to not having anything that needs it.
it just seemed really complex and like how you have to make the encrypted part like the folder thing
this might be since i really didn't have much time to spend on it then but ya. and thx on the sidebar thing i will look into that
edit: i got it to work but just couldn't really figure out how to use what i had done
