Encryption of USB drive with Portable apps

Hi everyone Smile

I would like to make an encrypted boot USB drive with Portable Apps. So that if I lose the drive it cant be accessed by anyone.
Ive searched around and cant find a way to do this. I have tried installing PA on my drive and then encrypting it but cant figure this out either.
Sorry to be such a noobie!

Any tips gratefully received

Thanks very much

In order to boot from the drive, you'd have to load Windows onto it, which isn't something we can assist you with.

A regular drive can be encrypted via the use of VeraCrypt or TrueCrypt but will require admin rights on every PC you use. You can also use a hardware encrypted drive like the Carbide as that will not require admin rights.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
