Solve Write Protection Problem in USB Flash Drives


Sometimes we cannot access our USB Flash Drives due to Write Protection Error. We cannot create a new folder, delete, format, copy or tries to modify the contents when Write Protection Error occurs.

It can be removed from the following steps-

Step 1> Open Run window from Start Button or you can directly run by pressing Window+r key from the keyboard.

Step 2> Type regedit in the Open text box and press enter.

Step 3> Go to the directory
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control

Step 4> Select StorageDevicePolicies if it is there. If it is not there then refer from step 7.

Step 5> Under Registry Editor, select WriteProtect

Step 6> Change the Value data from 1 to 0 and click ok.

Step 7> If you are not finding StorageDevicePolicies then go to the Control again. Right click on Control/New/Key

Step 8> Now, rename this New Key #1 folder to StorageDevicePolicies

Step 9> Right click on StorageDevicePolicies and select New/DWORD (32-bit) Value for 32-bit System and select New/QWORD (64-bit) Value for 64-bit System.

Step 10> Now Rename New Value #1 to WriteProtect under Registry Editor.

Step 11> Double click on WriteProtect and change the Value data from 1 to 0 and click OK.
