When we copy the data or files from Pen-drive to PC, sometimes an error message will be shown as “Cannot copy files and folders, drive is Write protected. Remove right protection or use another disk”. Even if we try to copy it many times, we won’t be able to copy. And also if we try to Format the Pen-drive or Delete the files from Pen-drive the same error message will be shown.
This error message is shown, because viruses make changes in “Registry”.
Let’s see an easiest way to remove the “Right Protection” on Pen-drive.
Click on Start – Run
Then Copy and Paste the following line.
reg add “HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevic ePolicies” /t Reg_dword /v WriteProtect /f /d 0
Then remove the Pen-drive and insert it again. Now Pen-drive will work without any error message.
If u wish to make your Pen-drive “Write Protection” again, Copy and Paste the following line in “Run”.
reg add “HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevic ePolicies” /t Reg_dword /v WriteProtect /f /d 1
If doesn’t work, restart your PC once.
