Doing some working on backing up pay details on a thumb drive. Got VeraCrypt working on the thumb drive very well. However I've found that although I can't open the vault, I can delete it. First I thought of password protecting it with a .dat file program, but that did not work - as after I open the hidden folder containing the vault file, VeraCrypt was not able to see it.
Anything i can do? I really don't want to use another program or any additional software if possible and nor can I use bitlocker (it will not run on our company PCs, as running Windows 7).
Thanks in advance,
