To expand on @KRS answer a bit...
If you are not getting a security tab, it is because of the file system being used on the USB drive. Your USB drive is most likely formatted as
FAT32. This is a common filetype that is able to be read on most computers that you would plug the computer into. One drawback, is that the max single size you can have on the drive is 4Gb and there is no file permissions able to be set.
FAT32 can be widely recognized on Windows, Linux, Macs etc.
If you want the security tab, you will have to format the drive as
NTFS instead of
FAT32. This can easily be done by opening up the file explorer on Windows10, going to
This PC, right clicking on the USB drive, choosing
Format and then choosing
NTFS. This will wipe all of the data off the USB drive. This WILL, however, give you a security tab on your files and folders.
If you want your files to be controlled by security settings, do the following:
- Copy all data to your C:\ drive somewhere first to back it up.
- File Explorer > This PC > Right click USB Drive > Format > choose NTFS under file system dropdown/check quick format > Start
- Copy all your files back to your USB drive from the C:\ drive backup
You should now have a security tab and be able to set file/folder permissions.
