  • have anyone tried any of these?

    • USB Safeguard and Kakasoft USB Security are very similar.
      Both work like a charm, but the kakasoft software has no limitations in usb size to encrypt, and it’s a bit cheaper if you want to buy the license.
      Just put the exe file in the usb drive and run it. Enter the password to encrypt and you are done. Every time you execue the program and enter the password it mounts a virtual drive on the pc.

  • HawkFest

    You should remove any of those from that list who limit the drive’s capacity. e.g. Rohos Mini Drive offers 8G encryption size only unless you buy it (but I haven’t found a button so as to buy it, funny)
