Talking USB Protection on the go

I have this very important flash drive with all my necessary software and files that i use on my client computers whenever I'm doing a servicing. What i want to know is if their are any portable antivirus which can protect my device from within when i do plug into an infected pc. In other words I do not want my flash drive to pick up any virus. Is this technology available

regards

Good question! You can buy a Flash drive with a write protection switch. Get one with a physical switch and be sure check the switch position before connecting to an unknown machine.

here's one manufacturer, but there are more: Kanguru SS3? USB3.0 Flash Drive With Physical Write Protect Switch | Kanguru Solutions

Look for deals on sites like newegg.

That's a really good idea Janet, better than having a portable antivirus on there.
