The password protection comes with an option to the USB Flash drives. So if your baby doesn't have it you cann't use it directly.

But here is a proggie you can try:

StorageCrypt 2 ( Last version v2.0.1 )
Quote:

Encrypt and password protect second hard drive , portable hard drive , flash memory disk. It's so faster that few seconds is enough for encrypting 100GB drive .It's easy to use for anyone with a minimum computer skills .

Do you have lot of movies, audios, documents on portable drive and care about someone accesses your data by stealth ? StorageCrypt is the solution. StorageCrypt allows you to encrypt and password protect removable and fixed drives, including USB drives, Memory Sticks, Flash cards , PCMCIA drives and more . It uses 128 bit AES encryption for maximum security and does not store the password on the removable device. Once encrypted, the removable drive can not be opened on any computer . StorageCrypt can work on public partition . You may take it to anywhere on the fly without the software installed on each machine .

You can use Folder Lock also ....


To protect files , open Folder Lock, click 'Browse' and select the option 'Move to portable disk'. Then read the instructions and click the 'Next' button. Now you will be able to select the drive(s) in which you want protection.

If your USB Flash Drive is L: then select the drive, click the 'Move It' button, this will move the program folder of Folder Lock to your USB Drive (Only about 1.75 MB). Now you can run the program from that drive, by going to L: through Windows Explorer. Then after running Folder Lock from there, enter the correct password, and keep the files/folders in the 'Locker' folder it creates there. Once all files/folders are transfered to the 'Locker' folder, simply switch to Folder Lock program and click 'Lock' button and choose 'Lock'

Re: Help - How to password protect a USB Flash drive?

Password Protect USB may be the solution to your problem. Install it on the USB flash drive and run it from the installation directory when you need to protect/unprotect folders containing the files that you do not want to get into the wrong hands.

Re: Help - How to password protect a USB Flash drive?

Password protecting a portable device is a snap with Folder Lock. All you need to do is create a Locker using Folder Lock and copy your Locker to the USB drive, Memory Stick or External Drive, wherever you want your Locker to go.

If you would like to move your Locker rather than keeping a copy on your hard drive, you need to log in with correct password for that Locker and then click ‘Edit My Locker’ in the left pane and click the ‘Move Locker’ button. Since Folder Lock doesn’t allow deletion of Lockers, you can’t move your Lockers directly without entering the password. Once you enter the password, you can always click the ‘Edit My Locker’ button to move, delete or rename your locker.

You can download winsesame from:
http://www.aragonsoft.com/en/winsesame/
It works well on usb drive, hard drive disk or network. there is a free limited version or you can buy a licence or a subscription for the full version. I use full version of winsesame on my 3 computers. It's OK.
