I would definitely recommend following the developer's advice and trying the free version before laying out the money for the full app

I have been thinking of how to accomplish your requirements and it may be possible to achieve without the use of the OTG cable. although this would allow a slightly better security of data, when you are away from he PC

Most if not all Tablets have the capability to transfer data files from a PC to the tablet memory just by the use of a standard USB lead, or even Bluetooth (assuming the PC has Bluetooth where it is less of a standard ).

If you create your secure backup using a Zip file from 7Zip you could copy this file to a USB and to the Tablet directly - the only reason you would need to use a OTG is to access the USB stick directly from the tablet.

What you could do is always treat the PC copy of the data as the master and the USB Stick and Tablet as backup, Any changes to the data on the USB stick or Tablet should be re-written to the PC as soon as possible, (and the file re-written to both of the other media). This would give you three secure copies of your data, and data the USB stick would be accessible when you have access to any PC (even if you do not have the tablet with you), and the USB stick is far easier to carry with you that a tablet.

If you do get the OTG system working you can, when away from the PC, use the OTG to update any changes to the data on the tablet to the USB Stick - Thus having at least two copies of the correct data at all times

I think I found the answer at eBay #252332821400 "a pluggable USB to Micro SD card reader W/OTG support USB2OTGTF". I can put an micro SD card in it and read/write the file on ether the tablet or my laptop. It is on the way to me.

A question about BitLocker Drive Encryption

I got the type C micro to regular cell phone adapter for the ZTE K90U tablet. I can now read the file on the USB flash drive in the tablet. But I am having a problem with file save in the Android version of MS Word. I can't figure out how to save the file with "save as" after making changes to the file. The regular save doesn't work. When I use the "save as" button, well take a look at the screen captures. They are in order. Screen capture1 is the file. Screen capture2 is after I hit the "save as" button. Screen capture3 is asking for the ok to write to the file on the USB flash drive. Screen capture 4 is the reselect screen. And I keep going around and around and around. It is driving me nuts. I could use some help please.

Steve
