Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 16GB Software Setup and Use:
The initial setup of the security software is rather easy and has a nice wizard for walking you through the process.
First step - choice of language. There's a long list of languages supported.
Next comes the ever-present, lawyer-speak riddled software license agreement. Just agree and move on.
Setting your password is no different than setting it on the web or just about any other application. It needs to be entered twice for validation purposes and the entry is masked for security purposes. You're also allowed to enter a "hint" to assist in the event you forget the password. This can be important as there is no password recovery option without wiping the entire drive!
A nice feature is the ability to add contact information so if the drive is lost or misplaced, the finder has a way of identifying the rightful owner should they choose to return it.
Once these steps are complete, the drive is formatted for use and made available to the user. Done!
When the drive is re-inserted, the password must be entered to allow access. It's at this point you can choose to show your password hint, reset the password (wipes the drive), or show the contact information.
