Windows 7: Anyone here an expert when it comes to using TrueCrypt?

Windows 7 baby ! : D
Anyone here an expert when it comes to using TrueCrypt?


I'm currently encrypting most of my 4GB USB Thumb Drive using TrueCrypt. It's awesome software to say the least !

Anyway, my question is, how would I go about preventing someone from formatting my USB stick ?

If someone were to steal it and decided to format it, obviously they wouldn't be able to access my TrueCrypt container on there, but would there be a way to prevent them from formatting everything using the standard right click context menu "format" ?
