Flash Drive Security
I'm new to this forum so please be gentle. I'm learning a lot about computers and HAD a flash drive until it got stolen at school (OK- it's my own damn fault... I left it in the usb port for 10 minutes until I remembered and I went back for it). I bought a new one yesterday and want to put password protection on it (all but one file which will have my contact info and a reward notice on it). I want to leave about 2 MB free space (unprotected) to make it useless to anyone who might take it- and to protect my files. It's a 512 MB. I would also like the software to be simple and free (that's not asking much, is it?) as I am very cheap (college student with 4 kids!). My old flash had a private zone and a public zone (it came with Secure D software), but the new one doesn't. I've downloaded Secure D from Crucial's website, but it will only install on the computer, it doesn't do anything to my flash, so it must be a different part of the program that came installed on my old flash. Any suggestions??
Thanks for your time and knowledge-
