    I would never use a USB-drive for mission critical information.. but that looks fine and sufficient... assuming you wont need to put it in a Linux or OS X computer/server as according to the webpage on Windows OS is supported.

    Hi Mark,
    I don't use it on Linux OS, just use for Windows OS. What I need is a RELIBALE USB Flash Drive.

    I'm sure tigerdirect has this as well... partner has one and likes it... I've not used one myself... they have a bunch in different sizes and such... I just picked the one I did a quick search on...

    edit: I see the one you are looking seems secure as well... did not see until I typed this...

    Info:

    AES 256-bit encryption

    Easily create multiple password-protected areas called Encrypted Vaults on the JumpDrive and/or host computer via the Secure II Dashboard utility.

    Data that you place into an Encrypted Vault is automatically encrypted.

    The File Shredder feature allows you to securely and thoroughly delete files so that they can never be re-accessed or recovered.

    For use with both PC and Mac

    Sandisk I like the best because of the design. Lexar's are also good I just do not like the plastic design. Get a sandisk there cheap and very reliable.

    If I were you, I would choose between Crucial Gizmo Overdrive or OCZ Rally.

    I got this one (blue, 2GB, Hynix powered) three months ago as a present and so far I have been satisfied, but those two I have mentioned above are much faster than mine.
