Lexar Media has launched the JumpDrive Secure II Plus, a high-capacity USB flash drive designed for safely storing, transferring, and sharing files, multimedia and more.

Offering the same advanced security software as original JumpDrive Secure II, including 256-bit AES encryption, users can easily create multiple password-protected areas and then drag and drop files.

It now features a handy built-in capacity meter that lets users easily see how much space they're using on the drive, and how much is left.

The JumpDrive Secure II Plus is compatible with both PCs (it works with Vista) and Macs.

Th Lexar JumpDrive Secure II Plus is available in stores now in 1GB (£19.99), 2GB (£27.99), and 4GB (£49.99) capacities.

An 8GB version will soon be available.
