I want to make an ecnrypted disk on mi USB drive.
I would like to use this drive also on a pc where i dont have admin rights.
I've tried different software (truecrypt etc) but they all need admin rights to run the encryption software.
I do like the functionality of TrueCrypt, single file encryption is no option.
Encrypted zip file with all your encrypted files in it?
Encrypted zip files can be pretty weak.
WinZip 9 and 10 support AES with 128 bit and 256 bit keys. There are a few issues for users and WinZip can expose the file names and some details - to get around this compress the all the files into an encrypted zip archive with an non-interesting name like "nothing to see here.zip" and then encrypt and archive that file unto your USB drive.
Unless AES is too weak for you.
