Any similar programs to USBCrypt?

Are there any good alternative for this particular software that password-protects our USB flashdrives?

I've used that one myself and it is good.

One drawback of any of them is that you'll need Administrator privileges to get at your stuff on a different computer.

Did you mean that on Windows 7 only or even on Windows 7's predecessors?

So, to those who've tried both USBCrypt and Truecrypt, which is generally better in your opinion aside from having one as freeware from the other?

I'm pretty sure that goes clear back to (at least) WinXP.
