Also- I should mention this will be used on Windows 7 and XP platforms.
I've been using TrueCrypt on drives with sensitive information, and it works great, but whats the best way to protect usb drives that doesn't require software installed on the host computer?
I don't need encryption or super great security, nothing is really to important. I'm just looking for a method to password protect either the whole usb device or a folder within. Again don't need strong security, just if I'm passing my usb around at work to hand out files i can prevent them from opening/copying certain files.
TrueCrypt doesn't require software to be installed on the computer.
There is a version that is self-executing that you can copy on the drive, outside of the encrypted partition.
EDIT - When you install it on your end you are prompted to either do a full install, or create a portable installation. This portable installation can be put on the drive.
