Protect USB Data

PROTECT YOUR DATA: Your USB flash drives can easily be encrypted with BitLocker

USB flash drives are convenient, portable, and very easy to lose. Which is a problem, especially if they're carrying sensitive data.  Windows 7 now has a program that will encrypt your documents with an extension of Microsoft's BitLocker technology, and only someone with the password will be able to access it.

Right-click your USB flash drive, select Turn on BitLocker and follow the instructions to protect your private files.
