FlashCP is a copyright enforcement technology for the storage of electronic materials (e.g. e-books). Originally developed under the trademark "BootLocker", SanDisk acquired the technology in 2005 with the purchase of Israeli-based MDRM.

FlashCP is primarily used on USB flash drives to provide students with storage capabilities of copyrighted material, while protecting the rights of the copyright holders. This is done through the use of Windows-based software that must be installed in order to use the FlashCP capability of the flashdrive. The software is not drivers, but interfaces with proprietary firmware in the flashdrive.

Currently,When SanDisk manufacturers one drive that uses the FlashCP technology, called the Freedom Drive, and is part of the Cruzer line.
