    Hello Hello

    The company im supporting at the moment has bought everyone a USB stick with software (UFDutility) on it that creates a secure (password protected) parition. However the software needs local admin rights to work.
    Im not going to give everyone admin rights so i wondered if anyone knew of any alternative software.

    It needs to run without admin rights, software that can run from the USB and free. Oh and nothing to complicated as im going to have to put it on 95 USB sticks.

    Any ideas?

    Pity I didn't see this earlier. You could have used Truecrypt.

    I tried TrueCrypt but it needs admin rights.

    Does it need admin rights or do you need to relax the permissions on the relevant Files and registry ?

    You need admin rights to map a drive letter, or you can do the method in this article http://www.geekknowhow.com/page_1264859152229.html.
    However this only applies to the PC on which you set it up. The whole point of the USB sticks was that they could be used at home and customer sites. (i also would have had to have done this on every employees PC)

    TrueCrypt might be good in some respects but in this situation it didnt fit.
