I just bought an Integral Secure Key from the Apple store but am fed up with having to use its own software just to transfer files to it as it does not appear as a normal USB drive in Finder.

How can I re-format the drive so as to remove the encryption and just have a normal USB drive? Is it as simple as using disk utility?

Also how could I in the future use the encryption facilities again? Is it enough just to keep the software which is provided on the USB key?
