Check the Properties (right click on the drive) - if the Read Only option is not selected then it is dying: recover all your files from it and replace it with a new one.

How to Password Protect And Access a Password-Protected Word Document


How to Password Protect a Microsoft Word Document
If you are working on documents that are important and shouldn’t be changed, then there is a way to password protect them so they cannot be changed except by you. You can also make the documents unavailable to open unless the person has the password as well.

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:

  • A Computer

  • Microsoft Office with Microsoft Word

  • Word Documents

  • General Knowledge of Microsoft Word

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word and open or create the document that you want to password protect.

Step 2

Click on “File” in the toolbar and select “Save As”.

Step 3

Click on the “Tools” menu and select “Security Options”.

Step 4

This will open a “Security Options” window. You may now set a password under the “Password to open” box, “Password to modify” box or both.

Step 5

Once you type in the password of your choosing you can opt to make the file “Read-only” by checking the appropriate box. You may then click “OK” to save your changes and then save your document as usual.

How to Access a Password-Protected Word Document
Accessing a password-protected Microsoft Word document is only possible when you have the correct password that opens the document. Encryption and security levels differ for separate versions of Word. Microsoft 2007 doesn’t offer any solutions to allow a user to retrieve forgotten passwords and Microsoft does not allow its employees to help in retrieving or breaking passwords. If you do not have the correct password for the document, you will be unable to access it.

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:

  • Microsoft Word

  • Document password

Step 1

Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you stored the Word document.

Step 2

Double-click on the document to begin opening it. A separate window will appear that prompts you to enter the document password.

Step 3

Enter the password, which is case-sensitive.

Step 4

Click the “Open” button or hit the “Enter” key. If the password was correct, the document will open. If it was not correct, another window will display advising you the password was incorrect and prompting you to try again.

Tips & Warnings:
Have you ever think of this situation, what if you forget the word password ? does that mean you’ll never regain the data in your word document, of course the answer is not , here is the solution for you to unlock password protection word document without data loss!

that is :Word Password Recovery 5.0, a simple tool for the easiest solution to Word password recovery. It recovers/removes the “Password to Open” and “Password to Edit” for you to view and edit the document freely.
By the way, there is a tool there called Password Recovery Bundle which including not only Word Password recovery 5.0 but also other programs that can recovery your windows password, office password as well as rar password, PDF Password, ZIP Password .

  1. Open Word, and open the protected document. Click on the "Developer" tab.
  2. Click on "Protect Document" tab, and then click on "Restrict Formatting and Editing."
  3. Click on "Stop Protection."

My PC could not save file in my flash drive where as folder can.


Maybe the root of the USB drive is protected. If you got any switch for write protection in the USB drive, unlock it and try saving.

Thank you!

PNY Write Protected


Check and see if you can copy and paste that file from it's location and place it on the desktop. Basically seeing if you can move that file within your PC. If this is a work computer, it might have precautions built-in to write protect it's documents. If you can move the file around in your computer then it's probably a problem with your flash drive. Can you copy anything to the drive?, such as a simple text file, music, etc. I'm also assuming that you checked the properties on the drive itself to make sure it wasn't locked. You could also try another flash drive to eliminate the possiblilty of your stick being defective.
Let me know how you do.
