First check to see if there is a switch on the USB drive if so switch it. Also you can try this - Start > Run > type ‘regedit’ (without the speachmarks) > Enter
- Single-click on ‘My Computer’ > File > Export > save it to the Desktop (Always best to have a backup!!)
- Go to the following:
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDeviceP olicies
*There seems to be some spaces here in 'StorageDevicePolicies' in the text above, there shouldn't be, OK*

- Double click on the string ‘WriteProtect’ and change the ‘Value Data’ box to ‘0’
The last solution is that the USB device is bad and you will have to replace it.

I have A-data my flash 8GB usb which write is protected please tell how i can Fix it ,,when i try to format the usb it say windows was unable to complete to format


The problem isn't with write protection. The file system has become corrupt and unreadable, or at least a section of it. If you can't reformat it then it's likely dying or dead. At least you should be able to recover some of your data however...

Your best bet is to reformat your drive. Go to your My Computer and select the drive. Right-click on the drive and select Format. you can then reformat the drive. Be warned this does delete all of the Data on the drive.

Hi
Please follow these steps
1. I think its not a problem with flash drive.
2. There should be virus in your computer.
3. Please install anti virus or if it is already there update it.
4. I think that virus is deleting your files in the flash drive.

Does this USB flash drive have a small slide switch on the edge of the drive to write protect the data on the drive?
If so move the switch to the read/write position.

Backup copying seems at a standstill


Okay Ive got the solution for you you. You need to reformatt the harddrive initially and then when you copy your 10Gb of data you need to split it up and copy it in smaller portions, because what is causing you problems is damaged or corrupted data files that you are trying to move and the system cannot copy them. by copying your files in smaller bundles lets say 1gb or 2gbs at a time you should be able to isolate the problematic files. this method also helps to avoid congestion in your buffers and processor. thanks
