Windows 7: Removable Disk Issues - Work through issues

11 Mar 2013   #11

Windows 10x64 Build 1709

Yes and Yes. It will delete everything. Yes I will help all I can.

If you want to change from read only it will reformat so all data will be lost. Click the Start button > Right click on "Computer" Icon > Select Manage > Click Disk Management on the left side (under storage) > Right Click on the Drive you want to change > Select Quick Format or Format (as the case may be) > Click O.K. that will reset your drive and remove read only .

Or : Click the "Start" button. Select "Run". Type "Command" to bring up the command prompt. Type "Lock x: off" to unlock it. Where "x" is your drive. (which may be a better option for you)
