    Memory Stick Password

    Hi all,

    I am after a way to password protect memory sticks (the more free it is the better).

    I don't particually need to encrypt the stick... it would be sufficient to just enter a password to gain access.

    I have looked at truecrypt, but this is proving to be too comlicated for users to cope with.

    How about formatting in NTFS and specifying permissions? Just as you would a network drive. Not sure how this would work with multiple machines though as the ACLs (Access Control Lists) would be different.
