Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I've got this user that's paranoid that their computer's hard drive is going to fail. Even though the fail rate for laptop workstations in any moderate office (200 terminals or more) is around 10 percent, we've had three users crash their drives this week alone.
They bought a USB flash drive and asked me to encrypt it for them so they could back up important work documents. Here's the problem though... The workstations do not have admin rights, and even if they did I'm not going to install third party software on them. So TrueCrypt is out unfortunately.
What I'm looking for is a way to encrypt the flash drive with a simple password protection so the user will "technically" be the only one that can access the files.
Also just telling the user to password protect each of their MS Office Documents is not an option, there's way to many of them.
