Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
Keeps telling me that the disk is full or wright protected
Open the drive through My Computer and right click on any file folder hat you want to delete. Choose Properties. When that screen opens, uncheck the box next to Read Only, click Apply, then Ok. See if you can delete the folder. If that works, then you will have to do that for every folder/file that you want to delete.

Tips for a great answer:
USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the
StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps
