    Hi All, just wondering what my fellow IT Professionals use to encrypt their USB Pen Drives? I use an Ironkey Personal that I'm very happy with.

    Do you use software encryption or hardware? Just fancied a general discussion on encrypting USB drives TBH.

    Ah yes, I plan to have a play with hiding a partition using true crypt when I get my new personal laptop. How do you find it? What is the impact on performance like?

    Any BitLocker users our there care to comment? I hear nothing but good in terms of recovery and TPM support

    I haven't done a whole drive yet, only my USB drives and it is pretty transparent once you have mounted it.

    My pocket, my fist, and my foot. :kar If you can make it through all that protection, you can have my data.

    Ha ha ha I like your style Michael, hopefully your method of encryption stands up to a brute force attack 8)
