    From wikipedia:
    Most U3 drives on the market feature a security lock within the U3 Launchpad. This loads the CD partition first and can be user-configured to require a password to be entered; otherwise the data partition will not load. The drive is supposed to seal itself after a certain number of invalid password entries, requiring a reformat.[10] Since the data partition is not encrypted, the user's data may not actually be secure, as the U3 CD-ROM partition can be easily be used to store any program.[11]
    I've also read that you can use data recovery software to restore the files from your U3 drive.
