Kingston Data Traveler Elite KUSBDTE/4GB
The silvery plastic case of this drive expands towards the ends so that it was easier for you to remove the cap from the interface connector. The cap snaps in place and sits rather fast. Besides that, there are rough black plastic pieces on the sides of the case so that you could grasp it firmly with your fingers. The manufacturer name, product series and model are painted on the case. The drive has a LED indicator of operation mode and a hole for a carry strap.
The Data Traveler Elite series consists of models with capacities of 512MB, 1, 2, and 4GB. They support USB 2.0. The manufacturer declares a max read speed of 24MB/s and a max write speed of 14MB/s. The dimensions of the flash drive are 77.4 x 22.1 x 10.1mm.
The device is shipped together with the My Traveler and Traveler Safe software and a small strap with a metallic ring. The Traveler Safe program can create a password-protected partition.

You can use it to specify your preferences, enable a console that would report on the status of the drive’s partitions, turn on read-only mode, enter the password, unplug the drive from the system, and synchronize folders and files.

This flash drive comes with an installation manual, a strap with a metallic ring, and with the DTSP program. Connecting the drive to the PC, the user will only be able to access a small 6MB partition that is recognized by the OS as an optical drive. In order to access the main partition, you have to launch the DTSP utility you can find on the start partition. On entering the password, the user will be able to work with all the capacity of the drive; all data on the drive are encrypted on the hardware level with the AES-256 algorithm. You have to enter the password each time you connect the drive to a PC. If the entered password proves to be invalid for ten times, the flash drive becomes blocked and the only thing you can do is to re-format it. Considering that the original password has a number of limitations on the minimum length and the characters used, you can indeed trust even your very confidential data to this device.
