Now could be your last chance to copying to what you considered to be
You said you had "very important things in this drive."
It is possible you will never see them again after you reboot or restart,
and I would not trust sleep mode either,
and I cannot help thinking that if either Windows defaults to power saving mode, or if the Disk is a "green" type,
then if the disk spins down it may lose the plot when it is supposed to spin up.

Now could be your last chance for copying "important things" to free space on C:\ and/or D:\ and/or an external drive.

Well, its possible that even though its working it may need need to be checked for errors. I would run a chkdsk /f to have the check disk program within windows scan for and hopefully fix what errors there are left which is probably the reason its lagging or running slowly. I would also suggest doing a defrag of the hard disk if that has not been done in a long time which will re organize the files on the hard disk and will help to speed up the operation of windows. Also, you might want to download and run ccleaner to clean out left behind and excess registry entries which also can slow down the hard disk and windows.

Absolutely NONE OF THAT should be attempted before you copy to a reliable device all that is important to you.
You might permanently kill the Disk before you rescue your files.

It is possible for defragging to spend over a day whilst it copies al the files from one region of a partition to another, and then back again, and again repeatedly.
Only if the drive survives that hard work is there a chance for you to make that all important copy of what is important,
and the only benefit of spending a day defragging is that you can save a few seconds copying your important files to an ultra super speed drive for safe keeping,
BUT the chances are that the best thing available to you is a USB3 external drive and USB3 will probably prevent you getting ANY benefit from a very slightly faster internal secondary HDD.

After rescuing anything of value,
and before trusting that Disk to ever again hold anything important,
I would want to fix it and prove that it is fixed and reliable.

If I was in your position I would seek advice upon relevant tools to perform stress tests on the Disk,
though whilst awaiting replies I might consider running chkdsk and defragging as a matter of interest.

If I thought the Disk was worthy of using again I would probably get advice on the merits of :-
a Quick or FULL format;
and also "chkdsk /f" or "chkdsk /r".

Now for no reason, I can't write to the drive and my apps can't either as they all crash as soon as they need to.

I get this exact error when simply trying to create a directory in the root of the drive:

"The disk is write-protected.

Remove the write-protection or use another disk."

Now what to do? its the same drive Local Disk G:/

This is my disk management




AND this is the screenshot of error

If the wright protection WARNING is for Disk G.
How long have you had Disk G?
How long has it been wright protected?
Where did you get the Hard Drive?

Your BVH file is confusing.

If it's a new HD with these problems it's probably defective.
Can you return it for a warranty replacement?

Yes it is a serious question.
When you post something like that I'm presuming that you would like to have help with that matter.

DavidW7ncus post # 17 sounds like a great idea to me.
