How to encrypt USB drive and how does USB encryption work
idoo USB Encryption software can easily divide the USB drive into two different partitions: the secure area and public area. The secure partition is encrypted using the AES 256 algorithm and is accessible after being mounted through the program. The secure area can only be opened by inputting a password, while the public area need not, which is the same as any USB drive that is not encrypted. More than convenient, the encrypted USB drive can be used on any PC without installing extra applications, and all we need is to remember the password. Once our encrypted USB drives were lost or lent to others, the secure area information cannot be accessed unless people's got the correct code.
Consequently, the files' names in the secure area are invisible, too, effectively enhancing the file security. It provides an ideal way to secure the data saved in USB memories. If the companion secure access application on the encrypted USB drive accidentally deletes, it can quickly recover. If we want the USB drive to only be used on our PC, instead of being used on any other computers, idoo Full Disk software would be our ideal choice.
