HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControl

Here in right side panel, click right to create a key with the name “StorageDevicePolicies”.

Now in left side panel, select “StorageDevicePolicies” key, again right click to create new DWORD value then label it “WriteProtect”. Set its value to “1?. But again to enable writing, set its values to “0?.

Now close the registry editor
Note: If it won't work then restart your pc

Alternative way:

open notepad and copy and paste the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlStorageDevicePolicies]
"WriteProtect"=dword:00000001

Double click on the file you just saved. In the pop-up window click YES and then OK.
That's it your USB is now protected

"WriteProtect"=dword:00000000
Now save the file with the extension ".reg".
Double click on the file you just saved. In the pop-up window click YES and then OK.
