Hi Kasey,

We understand that this caused you inconvenience.

I suggest you to try the following methods and check:

Method 1: Modify Registry.

Right-click Start, thenselectRun.

Enter regedit in theOpen: box and selectOK.

Locate and then click the following registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControl.

In the left pane, right click Control key and selectNew -> Key.

Name the new sub-key so created asStorageDevicePolicies.

In the right pane of this sub-key i.e.StorageDevicePolicies, right click and select New ->DWORD Value.

Name the newly created DWORD asWriteProtect.

Sometimes DWORD might be found under the sub-key and the DWORD has a Value set to Double-click on theDWORD to modify its Value data.

Change the Value data to 0 from 1.

Method 2: Diskpart command.

In the search box on the taskbar, typeCommand Prompt, right click on Command Prompt and then select as administrator.

Type Diskpart in Command prompt and press enter.

Type list disk on the next prompt and hit enter (Search for the disk number under the heading Disk ### for the disk that you want to switch off write protection.).

Enter Select disk followed by the disk number and hit enter.

Type attributes disk clear readonlyand press enter
