I have a 16 GB pen drive. I am looking for a free tool which can help me password protect it and use other system which do not have this software. Is it possible ? Please help.

I have Transcend. It had some password protection tools while I bought it. But lost while formatting. :(

Simply just google it..!!! And you will find softwares.... as Bill Gates have dollars in his bank :p ;)
 
You can use BitLocker (a Windows inbuilt encryption tool) to encrypt the pen drive. But it works only on win vista, 7 and 8. TrueCrpt is a better and more widely accessible solution.

You can try 'USB Flash Security', but i guess the free version only secures upto 4GB Pendrives.

I Googled first. Found Rohos mini drive (free version gives 8 GB) and USB Safeguard (which creates a password protected partition). But I am trying to password protect whole USB.

Ya, that is why I didn't depend on Bitlocker. I use many Linux PCs as well. As for Truecrypt, we need it in other system as for it to work (I heard so).

Thanks for your replies.
