    So had a close shave today, nearly lost my personal USB stick that has a lot of sensitive information like accounts, passwords etc on it. I was searching around for a free USB encryption software that is stand alone, does not need to be installed on every computer that I wish to use my USB on.

    Should be fast, and obviously protect my data from the usual theft and loss.

    Thanks in advance!

    TrueCrypt, has a portable version that you can keep on the USB drive however it requires admin access.

    My favorite solution is 7-zip, keep a 7-zip portable version on the drive and password protect archive whatever you want.
