Hi,

I have a 8GB verbatim flash drive and it has V-Safe100 so the whole 8gb is password-protected called privacy zone and i store all my important info really important info. :thumbsup:


and my question is if is password protected does it mean is encrypted and viruses,malwares,spywares,trojans,rootkits,and keyloggers can access it or can they infect my flash drive too?


can i use rohos-mini-drive to encrypted or is V-Safe100 privacy zone safe enough? :huh:

According to the user manual I did not see anything stating that the password system would protect you from viruses/malware ect. I would suspect the primary purpose of the V-100 protection is to deter/stop human intrusion into your data should you happen to drop the drive on the street and it contains secret corporate documents.

Also I will state that many malicious programs are very malicious and therefore may be designed so they can get around these kinds of things. I would expect that your drive is generally safe from human intrusion excepting people with knowledge of IT stuff or mediocre Google skills on how to find a password breaker. I would not treat the drive as if it is virus proof by using it to repair infected computers.
