Once your thumb drive is encrypted, can it still be used across Lion & Windows Operating Systems?

Using this method, your thumbdrive is going to be Mac and Lion compatible only.

If you're looking for encryption that's cross platform, you may want to look at a tool like TrueCrypt (truecrypt.org). We don't yet have an article on using this tool to encrypt your drives, but the TrueCrypt site does have good documentation.

This is one feature I'm definitely going to use.
