The DataTraveler comes with driver software for Windows 98, a brief pamphlet detailing hardware and driver installation, a cloth neck strap, and a keyring. It also comes preloaded with Kingston's TravelerSafe 1.1, a user-friendly program that lets you password-protect up to 90 percent of the drive. However, it's important to note that whenever you format the drive using TravelerSafe, all the files on the drive are deleted, including the TravelerSafe's instruction file. (Always drag a copy to your desktop before reformatting.)
Kingston's DataTraveler is available in a range of capacities from 64MB to 256MB. The 256MB model we tested costs around $83, or about 32 cents per megabyte--a little less expensive than average.
