How To Protect Your Pendrive From Virus?

You can make your normal pen drive to virus protected pendrive. The things that are needed for the accomplishment of this trick are: a pc having windows 7 or 8(it may work in vista) and a pendrive. Follow the below steps to perform this task.
Steps Needed To Complete This Task:

Step 1:- Connect your pen drive to your pc which have widows 8 or windows 7 operating system. (You must have administrator rights)
Step 2:- Open ‘My Computer’ and right click on pendrive icon then select ‘Format’ option.(Before formatting you must take a back up of all of your data)
Step 3:- In Format window select file system tab and change it to ‘NTFS’ then Start format.
Step 4:- After formatting done close the format window and open your pendrive.
Step 5:- Create a folder in pen drive and rename it to ‘secured’.
Step 6:- Come back to ‘My Computer’ and again right click on pendrive and now select ‘Properties’ tab.
Step 7:- In properties window select security tab then click on edit and check on ‘Deny’ box for ‘Write’ permission then press ok to apply the settings.
Step 8:- Open pen drive again, right click on ‘Secured’ folder select ‘Properties’ then ‘Security’ tab. Click on ‘Edit’ tab & set ‘Allow’ permission to ‘Full Control’ then click ok to apply settings.
Step 9:- Open ‘Secured’ folder, create one folder into that and name it to ‘Secured.exe’.
Step 10:- Right click on ‘Secured.exe’ folder select ‘Properties’ and make it hidden by selecting ‘Hidden’ attribute then select ‘security’ tab click on ‘Edit’ and set ‘Deny’ permission to ‘Full Control’. Press ‘Ok’ to apply the settings.
[Note:- Now your pen drive is virus protected. But you can’t copy files into your pen drive directly. you need to copy all of your files to the secured folder and I recommend that copy your software setup files to the zip folder. so, virus can’t access software’s exe files.]
