I have heard several of my clients asking me that they want to protect thier USB drive without any form of hardware encryption.
This post summarizes the use of USB Safeguard to protect files and folders on your USB flash drive.
USB Safeguard is a portable application that runs directly from your flash drive and thus does not require Administrator rights on the local computer.
- Supports USB flash drive, HDD hard drive, SSD, memory card and others
- Allows you to open your private files on any PC Windows without admin rights*
- Keeps data safe on all systems including Windows Mac and Linux
- No requires installation, runs directly from your drive
- File system encryption with AES 256 bits key
- Auto drive locking if the user is inactive
- Instant lock when unplug the drive
- New corporate admin feature
- There is no back door
- 100% portable
How it works
- Download the usb safeguard.exe and copy it to the root of your USB flash drive.
- Run it from your flash drive and enter a password to lock the drive. When you start it the first time, a message will appear asking you to format the drive in NTFS before run the App (follow the instructions) and click Yes to continue with the Setup
- When Setup has finished, run the App (accept the license agreement) and set the password. Enter the password to open the Virtual drive, where you can copy your private files
- Close the Virtual drive by click on Close button or unplug the drive to keep data safe!
To unlock it, run the file again and enter the password. The locking procedure must be repeated every time you want the drive to be locked as the tool will remember its last status, i.e. locked or unlocked.
It uses AES 256 bit encryption. The free version is limited to drive size of 2GB.
