  1. Did you guys know, that USB Secure can lock and password protect virtually any USB thumb/flash drive as well as HDD Drives. You can carry private data on portable drives without worrying about anyone gaining access to your sensitive files and folders, USB Secure is dynamic in the sense that you can view all your protect files in a virtual drive, meaning your data is automatically password protected in any case. Simply go on Google and search for ‘USB Secure’.
