SanDisk SecureAccess software is designed to protect sensitive data on your drive. When security is enabled in the app, a special “SanDiskSecureAccess Vault” folder is created on your drive. All locked files are moved to the SanDiskSecureAccess Vault and can only be accessed with a password.
Vulnerabilities in Western Digital SanDisk SecureAccess could be exploited to access user data through brute force and dictionary attacks.
SanDisk Secure Access is not a required part of the SanDisk flash drive and can be easily erased. But luckily you can just download and reinstall it.
Checking if the SanDisk USB is authentic is very easy, every Sandisk USB has a built-in storage security program called SanDisk Secure Access this program is exclusively for SanDisk USB and cannot be installed on others USB – so if your USB doesn’t have this program, your Sandisk USB is probably a fake.
No, the software used with it is optional. It is used for file encryption. The drive works fine without installing anything extra.
Deleting the SecureAccess software will delete ALL encrypted data stored in the SecureAccess Vault. Locate the drive letter associated with the flash drive and double-click it.
Access to your private vault is protected by a personal password and your files are automatically encrypted. Even if you share your SanDisk® USB flash drive or it’s lost or stolen, access to your files is safe.
During the installation of SecureAccess, you had the option to configure a password hint. If you lose or forget your password, you can use the Forgot Password link on the SecureAccess 3.0 login page. This displays the hint you configured during installation that can help you remember your password.
Select the files and/or folders you want to add, right-click and select Copy. 2. From the main SecureAccess screen, right-click the My Vault window and choose Paste. The files are encrypted and transferred to SecureAccess 3.0.
Check that the Windows properties show that the drive is the specified size. Browse to the USB drive in Explorer and right click on Properties and check the displayed capacity. This should (roughly) match the advertised drive capacity, which is usually printed on the outside of the drive and/or on the box.
