    sorry for my 1 post but if your pen drive doesn't support U3 than whatever S/W you used if someone format your pen drive than all your protection is lost

    my pen drive is of kingston 4GB with FAT or FAT32 file directory format.
    I just want Password protection guys and if possible while formatting also it should ask password. That is only IF POSSIBLE. The main is "PASSWORD PROTECTION". When i connect my pen drive on other's Pc it should prompt me password.
    And thanks krishnandu.sarkar . I will test "folder lock" with my pen drive.
    PLease REPLY
