Hello,

I've tried easeUS, diskpart, and regedit which shows no storage device policies!

Please assist me on how to remove the write protection!

Thank you
I suspect your flash drive is defective and needs to be replaced.

Did you try another computer?
No, it's not defective. I can still access data previously stored in the USB stick. I just can't delete, add, or format the flash drive on account of the write protection!

Have you ever tried to run CHKDSK in CMD?

So, if you gain admin privileges and issue a format command on the stick, and it still fails?
what about:

attrib -r [drive_letter]

I agree with xpcman, that is defective!
