3.Delete the StorageDevicePolicies in Your Registry.''

Do you have another pendrive? Plug it in and see whether it has the same problem.

Is it your own PC or company-owned?

In the problem computer, does the drive have a drive letter? ( It is not clear whether the screenshot of Disk Management pertains to the problem computer or the other computer.)
