check Arthurs post on this thread
arrrrggghh! vbs and quotes
it might help
this is the method we are using.
we have also purchased a usb duplicator and this setup is working well.
the sticks have been personalised for the school using the logo on the outside and for the icon in the autorun.

So I've spent the day looking at Cryptainer, TrueCrypt and a Lexar hardware-encrypted pen drive - the front-runner by far was Cryptainer, for the ease of use and difficulty of fouling it up. It is quite expensive though (£40/user), so I want to try a few others before I go and buy that.
What I'm after is something as simple as possible to use, the closer it is to double-click, enter password then start working the better.

Don't we all turn Autorun off by default in GP these days though?

We use Safend Protector. As an encrpyted USB solution, I think it will tick your boxes. Does tons more too.

dont know if im missing the point here but what about Bitlocker? part of windows 7 (versions up from pro to enterprise.... and free if you have win 7

Like you say - part of Win 7, which we don't yet have, and nor do our staff all have it at home.

If you are using Windows 7, you can use BitLocker...

Looks good - per seat licensing could make it quite expensive though, as we would need it on 150 computers for the use of only around 50 people.

Its got no European security accreditation - I'm sure it works fine, but depends how compliant you want to be and what information you're encrypting as to whether that's a usable solution.

Sorry, i should have mentioned that it's the LEA that use it. On an individual school basis the costs could be prohibitive.

True.. But.. as mentioned here
Don't we all turn Autorun off by default in GP
these days though?
Truecrypt Container Mode
you can still use it for context menus.

Why not just buy an encryting penstick - they're very cheap now and even PC World sell them.
