    I'm looking for recommendation to secure/encrypt/password protect a 4 GB Corsair flash drive. Something similar in functionality to the Kingston DataTraveler Secure Privacy Edition.

    TIA

    Truecrypt is an encryption program that creates encrypted folders or volumes. There is a traveller mode for use with USB sticks.

    So lunar and 1002,

    Just to clarify, you use truecrypt to secure your usb flash drive? Any negatives?
