Kingston DataTraveler 400 2GB USB Flash DriveFri, Mar 07, 2008 - 12:00 AM
The Privacy Software
The Data Traveler 400 comes bundled with MigoSync data synchronization and SecureTraveler2 data security software. All installers come packaged on the drive itself along with PDF files for the instructions. I will first be looking at the SecureTavler2 software.
When you start the software you see the formatting wizard that allows you to set how much of the drive will be public and private. This is also where you set the password for the private section. Kingston was also nice to provide you with a space to give yourself a hint to what the password is. Sorry for you Mac and Linux guys the SecurTraveler2 software will not work for you.
Once you click OK you get a warning that your about to format the drive and you need to back up what is on it if you want to keep it.
From this point on when you run the software you will be greeted with a login screen.
After you’re logged in you are greeted with a little reminder of what you need to do so not loose your data that you have been working on. With the private and public partitions setup on the drive windows will only see one or the other at one time. This starts to get a little confusing if you do a lot of back and forth between the two. After using it a couple weeks I ended up just making the whole drive private, saving the head ache of trying to remember what side that what file was on. Doing this also allows for more space that can be used for syncing files with the MigoSync software.
