Cososys EasyLock is what i tried and use
by Carl_Hill95 / October 16, 2012 5:18 PM PDT

I know the easylock solution from my officer where we have to use with USBs on Windows to encrypt data but it also works in the same way on Mac. I also use it at home (Mac only) and cannot say how simple it is. haven't even considered trying another USB encryption tool.

Cososys usb encryption

I have to agree with Carl. Since I've lost a usb stick with some personal stuff, I decided not to use this type of tiny device without encryption ever again. EasyLock is the easiest tool I found. I'm telling just have to drag and drop the files in the encrypted side, and it's all done.

Does EasyLock encrypts the entire drive (like a zip file or something) or each file?
(trying to understand can I have an encrypted and non-encrypted folders on the same device?)

Encrypted and unencrypted I think data is possible on device

In reply to: thanks!

I use easylock like you say, with easylock all files go in a folder but are separately encrypted so not like a zip. And I keep some files also unencrypted on the device.
