I believe Bitlocker would be your answer. It's built into Windows and
available for Mac (and possibly Linux?). It can encrypt any device
including USB drives. It is user level so does not require admin rights.
You'd have to take extra precautions to securely delete the source files if
you want them truly gone from the non-encrypted source drive.
