Every word processing program supports a password function for the file to prevent

any unauthorized access to the documents. Once you set a password, other people
cannot open the file.

Q. I formatted USB Drive for the NTFS file system. Can it be used in other

Microsoft Windows 98, 98SE and ME does not recognize the NTFS file system. If you

want your

USB Drive

compatible for all operating systems, format it for FAT because all

listed operating systems support it.

all semiconductor technology, flash memory has no moving parts and is expected to last
for many years.

not support mass storage device completely. You need not to install any driver for other
