Remove write protection from my LG External HDD HXE4 3.0 500GB


Using an external hard drive is a convenient way to transport files from one computer to another or share files with a co-worker or friend.
Activating copy protection, otherwise known as write protection, on the files that you place on the external hard drive is a good idea, as it will prevent that data from being altered inadvertently when connected to another machine.
Remove copy protection from your files when the external drive unit is again attached to a trusted PC and you wish to change the structure of the files.

Connect the external drive to your computer system.
Right-click "Start" and then click "Explore."

Click the external drive on the list of available devices.
Right-click on the copy protected files that you wish to unprotect status and click "Properties."
Uncheck "Read-only."
Close the Explorer menu and proceed to edit your files as desired.

The Hard Drive must be Write protected. There might be a Toggle switch around External Drive for Write Protection. Or can you save files to any other USB Drive (Pen Drive) ?

Simpletech external hard drive is showing as write-protected disk


Usually a protected hard drive has been in a laptop and the hard drive password is setup from the laptop's BIOS configuration. This password is embedded on the hard drive's chip.
This password protects the data from unauthorized access and must be removed before reuse in another laptop or as an external hard drive.
There are no backdoor passwords available and needs to be removed using that laptop's BIOS configuration, you need to know the password to enable you remove the password peotection.
