Flash Drive Encyrption

  1. Hey, guys. Ummmmm....I have a problem. My personal flash drive (the only one I have) has very important files on it. This wouldn't be a problem except...I have to give it to my teacher. I'm afraid that she might delete all of the files on there or something, and I don't want to lose the stuff I have. Is there a program that you can put on a flash drive that will prevent deletion of certain folders and files without a password? After the program's usefulness is over, will I be able to remove the encryption off of these certain folders and files?

    You still won't be able to prevent the teacher from formatting the drive :D

    Really, just make a copy of the important stuff. You should have a backup in any case, since flash drives are not reliable and the thing could fail or get lost at any moment anyway.

    If you want to encrypt the contents of a flash drive, try one of my fav problems truecrypt.
