Store files securely on a USB flash drive
Authored by: BrentT on Aug 07, '06 05:21:28AM
You're right. Perhaps a simpler method for this hint is to:
#1. In Disk Utility, choose File -> New -> Blank Disk Image.
#2. Select a size that is less than the flash drive's maximum size, then select Encryption -> AES-128, then select Format -> read/write disk image. Select Create, you will then be asked for a password. Provide the password and save the image to your hard drive.
#3. Copy the file secure-disk-name.dmg to the USB drive.
