    Secure USB FLash Drives

    Are there any USB flash drives (at least 512MB upwards) which have some sort of security, e.g. password protection. Don't want something that is stupidly expensive. Any linkies?

    Cheers.

    Google is your friend! Alternativle download Gpgp (for windows) and encrypt the files on the flash drive

    Try those with fingerprint scanners, slightly expensive though and supposedly prone to break.....
    Otherwise stick a padlock around it. Trying pry to open this will surely break it.
    Woohoo now Assistant Manager!
