Write protection, when applied to a USB drive, prevents unauthorized users from
adding to, changing or deleting anything contained on the drive. Using write
protection, you can circulate the drive among several users with the assurance that
each user will see the same message. You can also prevent inadvertent deletion of
the drive’s data. To permanently remove write protection from your USB drive, you
need to format the drive. Before doing so, copy any files you want to save to another
storage unit.

Permanently Remove Write Protection

Step 1

Insert the USB flash drive into a USB 2.0 port and turn on your computer. Click the
"Start" button and then select "Computer." Note the drive letter of the USB drive,
which is labeled as "Removable Disk."
