USB Flash Drive Security is a free to use software which lets you protect you pen drive with a unique password without which no one can see your protected files and folder on your flash drive irrespective any computer to which your pen drive is connected and being accessed.


It can let you protect an area on your pen drive, but make sure to install USB Flash Drive Security on flash drive which you want to protect with a password. Just unplug it from the computer and it can be locked with a password.


There will be the same transfer speed after installing “USB Flash Security”, Files in the USB flash memory will not be coded, so the speed of read and write will not be influenced by installing “USB Flash Security”.



The tool to release USB Flash security by input a password is called “Release tool” this application makes the following two areas in USB flash drive.

Small area about 0.5MB to save “Release tool”  – The area to save “release tool” is 0.5M Byte that is 1/2000 of capacity of a 1GB USB flash memory. It can be access without password, when the USB flash memory is inserted into PC. Data in this area is not protected, so we call the area “Unprotected Area”

Area to save data that you want to protect – This area is all of the USB flash memory except the “Unprotected Area”.Password is necessary to access this area. This area is protected by a password, so we call it “Protected Area”. ”Protected Area” will be formatted by FAT, when install “USB Flash Security”.
