Two Layers of Data Security Ensure Peace of Mind
The drive protects your digital content with password protection and secure Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) hardware encryption. This means that your content will stay private and secure via data scrambling at the flash controller level when the drives are either physically removed for portability or stored away for safe keeping.
The data encryption is accomplished automatically without you noticing. There's no activation or software needed. You simply use the SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash drive like you would any flash drive, but with the knowledge that your data is protected.

When you plug the disk into your computer, a glowing, amber-colored LED alerts you that the drives are ready for reading or writing data. This LED rapidly pulses when data is being transferred, and it slows down when the drives are idle, giving you a clear indication of the disk's activity. An intuitive interface appears on your computer screen to let you customize the way you back up your files.

This is not the only problem with this product, which I could see testing it on my friends computer. It is slow, REALLY SLOW. I tried to transfer a big block of date and it took about 6 hours. Granted it was a lot of data, but when I used a different thumb drive it took about 45 minutes.
Ny suggesting is "DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT".
