    You can use a product like truecrypt (which can run from the usb drive) to create encrypted folders. On the drive it looks like a single file, when unencrypted and mounted it becomes a virtual drive.

    This may not protect your data from your server admin however.

    Yup, TrueCrypt's definitely a good idea. You could put the TrueCrypt installer onto the USB drive and use the remaining space to create a TrueCrypt container; then on each PC you use it on, you could install TrueCrypt, then mount the file. I've used TrueCrypt on USB drives for years without a hitch. However, once it's mounted, the SysAdmin may be able to get access to it, depending on how the system is configured.
