Hello!
Tell me how to securely encrypt a USB flash drive and hard drive on Windows 7 x86?
Besides Bitlocker, are there any normal alternatives?

He doesn’t want to encrypt problems with a bitlocker using a PIN code, he needs to write the key to a USB flash drive, but if someone gets access to this USB flash drive, access to files on the hard drive is obtained.
  • Options on a flash drive are always the worst and most vulnerable:
    - the flash drive is lost - this can be finished;
    - flash drive steals very easily;
    - the flash drive crashes: water, children, static electricity, fire, loss

  • Yawning Yacare, Well, I need for example such an option -
    I set the password to boot the hard drive and without the required password, even if I connect the hard drive to another computer, it will not work.

    A flash drive must also be encrypted with a password, but so that without the need to create(USB tokens) or write keys to another flash drive.

  • My20, For the above reasons, I would not consider a flash drive at all – Yawning Yacare Oct 14 '19 at 18:08
  • Yawning Yacare, Yes, but the bottom line is that there is data on the flash drive that is stored on the hard drive.It turns out the flash drive is for me a kind of backup copy of information on the hard drive. Therefore, it is necessary to protect information directly on the hard drive and back up data on a USB flash drive. – My20 Oct 14 '19 at 18:12
