Copy protected problem on my computer

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I can’t write anything in my computer.

I don’t know wherein my pc lies the problem.

Yesterday, when I was trying to create a folder or copy files from one location to another, it says "write protected".

How can I fix the problem?

You are facing this problem due to a software or hardware error.

You can resolve this problem by following options:

To unlock your ‘C’ drive Click on Start and type “Lock sys:on” in Run and press enter.
Enter the command “Lock sys:off” if you want to lock your drive.

If you want to lock or unlock another drive, you can do this. You have to just replace the drive name with ‘sys’.
Remember, to allow this you have to check in the BIOS settings whether this feature is available or not.

Also, to unlock and lock the hard drives you have to check the settings of jumpers.

This facility is available on some devices.

You may have write protected your hard drive and therefore you cannot move anything or make any changes to it.

Use the following procedure:

  1. You will need to  open the command prompt as follows: click Start, typing command, and then Command Prompt.
  2. You will need to type diskpart and press Enter on your keyboard.
  3. Then you will type list volume and then press Enter.
  4. Next you need to type select volume #, where # represents the number of the drive that's giving you the "write-protected" error when you use it.
  5. Thereafter, you will need to type attributes disk clear read only and then press Enter.
  6. Done all that, you will exit and then press Enter.
