USB Disk Security is nice, and I have used another kind of software called USB security, which is also so so great! It needs no installation so we can just copy the client in the USB flash drive that we need to protect and then double click on it to enter the password twice to finish the protection. But above all, it's totally free! You can get it here: http://www.kakasoft.com/usb-security/
