That's useful info, I've made a note of the instructions and will check my own flash drives. (I'll try to remember to report back.)

Sometimes I'm a bit slack about security when accessing online data, because I'm so used to working within secure IT environments, I kinda forget that not every IT environment is secure, and neglect to take appropriate precautions! :-)
