    I'm looking for a USB encryption software and have downloaded a number that don't really function the way I would like. I want to store private info like Quicken data,Roboform data, emails etc but NOT as an archive but for regular daily usage (just as if they were in My Documents) so I can use them when I want
    Preferably I would be
    - Prompt for a password on USB insertion on on a system reboot (I don't want to click on a desktop icon and then activate it or use explorer to click on an exe file to activate it) - Just a simple popup box.
    - Taskbar icon to close or re-activate the encryption
    - Portable
    - If a `drive' is created I must be able to choose the drive letter so it's consistent when portable
    - Prefer no popup of USB contents

    Truecrypt using the "Can a volume be automatically mounted whenever its host device gets connected to the computer?" approach described at acceptable? Or does that fail your "portable" test?

    Your best bet might be hardware encryption for simple password pop-ups on USB drives.
