Note: The vendor no longer produces this program, but
they still support it. Visit to
read PC World‘s review of USB Lock Standard, this file’s
Vista-capable successor. Isn’t it great that rewritable CDs,
removable USB drives, and floppies let you take your data with you?
And isn’t it creepy that these same things let other people take
your data with them? USB Lock AP lets you lock down or lock out the
drives that could compromise your data’s security. With this
program, you can stop a floppy drive and a CD-ROM or combo drive
and/or removable USB drives.
Since USB Lock AP is password-protected, you can change the
settings whenever you need to use those drives for your own
purposes. Even when USB Lock AP blocks removable USB drives, your
other USB devices–cameras, printers, and so forth–keep working
the same as ever.
