Is there any software can be used to protect USB flash memory or its
contents?

I have had good success with Microsoft's own *free* flash manager utility.
You can download it at

Flash drives are easily pulled from the computer and could be held for
ransom or destroyed. They wouldn't be a good choice to secure data. But if
you want to use them, consider a password program to protect your data.

I have one particular file, a list of e-mail addresses and their passwords
which I can't take a risk of loosing. I save a backup copy on my IP server,
password protected of course.

You may want to consider EasyFP, a file protection program that guards
against file theft which a file can't be opened or deleted unless the file
password is applied.
