    Corsair Introduces Flash Padlock Secure USB 2.0 Drives

    Corsair today launched the "Flash Padlock” family of affordable USB 2.0 drives, the safest way to secure your data while on the go. Priced starting at only $29.99, the Flash Padlock line of affordable USB 2.0 flash drives address the need for secure data storage through hardware technology, rather than software. Flash Padlock features "Auto-Locking," so the user doesn’t need to remember to enable the protective feature - It will automatically lock and protect itself after removal from the computer.

    With its simple touch-pad security PIN entry system, Flash Padlock can be unlocked quickly and confidentially for use as a standard USB flash data drive. Flash Padlock is impervious to “brute force” hacks or keystroke loggers that would defeat a software secured USB flash drive.

    Flash Padlock is immediately available in two capacities:
    • Flash Padlock 1GB ~ $29.99 USD MSRP
    • Flash Padlock 2GB ~ $39.99 USD MSRP
    Flash Padlock Security Features Include:
    • Hardware-Enabled Auto-Lock Function: Device Auto-Locks in 15 seconds after removal from computer.
    • User Customizable Security PIN - User sets unique security PIN (up to 10 digits long) for unlocking device.
    • Platform Independent: Works on Windows, MAC and Linux platforms without the use of additional software.
    • Easy to Use: Direct keypad access and indicator lights make locking/unlocking simple and understandable.
    “The Corsair Flash Padlock is one of the most secure USB flash drive solutions on the market today,” said Jack Peterson, VP of Marketing at Corsair. “Corsair has built the Flash Padlock specifically for those customers with concerns about inadequate software-based security solutions on a USB flash drive. The designed hardware security feature puts these concerns to rest,” continued Peterson.

    Corsair Flash Padlock 1GB and 2GB products are available immediately through Corsair’s authorized distributors and resellers world-wide, priced at $29.99 USD MSRP and $39.99 USD MSRP respectively. Corsair Flash Padlock products are backed by a 3-year Limited Warranty. In addition, a PIN registration service and complete customer support via telephone, email, forum and TS Xpress are also available.

  3. Padlocks on files in VS2017 Roaming Folder

    Thanks for your reply...

    I do not have a Share With option for a single file ie mytest.txt

    I can only select Sharing in a Folder via the Properties option in the context menu, and select the Sharing Tab.

    But Folders do not have the Padlock on them.

    The offending file path is:


    One thing I have found is that:

    If I create a text file in the \14d288d6-8a98-4310-b060-5a7aafc7cd25_h37gyvpph0nvj\ folder directly then it is OK

    If I create a text file in the RoamingState folder (RoamingState is displayed as a Shortcut) the text file created here has a Padlock.

    padlock on temporay folders

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.

    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.
