Windows 7: How do I remove the write protection on my E-drive

How do I remove the write protection on my E-drive

Somehow in the last few hours my E-drive has become write protected. I don;t know of anything I have done to do this, but of course I have done something.

How do I remove the write protection?

Here is the notification that comes up when trying to save a file to the drive.

Thanks
Don

Open "Computer", right click on drive E: and select Properties, choose the Security tab at the top, click on the Edit button, you can change permissions there.

I'm still not sure what I did but it is working now. I don;t think i had to do anything but restart. Hmmmm, the experiences of a noob.
