I follow your step by step as below :

Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.
Navigate to the following path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\...... but after that we not found this option (StorageDevicePolicies ) what to do please advice.

Is any other option to Delete Write Protected files on USB.

Dear Ambucias,

Thanks for your replay.

1) There is no write protection on a USB key. (I can't format and delete my data because all folder and file is Write protection)

2) I follow your step by step but there is no option for "Storage Device Policies " what to do please advice.

Waiting for replay.

Try this:

Click start
then run regedit
go to this directory HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Currentcontrolset\control\
if you can't find StorageDevicePolicies under control folder
then make some new one. Follow this steps:

step 1:
go to this directory HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Currentcontrolset\control\
again and right click control folder

step 2:
select new, then click key and rename the new key #1 folder into
StorageDevicePolicies

step 3:
right click StorageDevicePolicies folder and select new DWORD(32-bit) Value
for 32-bit Operating System and select new DWORD(64-bit) Value
for 64-bit Operating System

step 4:
rename dword newer folder into WriteProtect, then double click WriteProtect
and change the value data into 0 with hexadecimal base, Then close regedit

step 5:
open my computer and refresh it 5 times without do anything to your usb, and
properly eject your flash drive

step 6:
plug in your usb again into your computer and format it using exfat instead of fat32

Sorry,

This ZOGI thing, as far as I am concerned, is a cheap Chineese imitation for which I am out of solutions except for this last format tool.

Hello

You mean pen drive not pan drive (a pan is for frying). :-)

This ZOGI thing, as far as I am concerned, is a cheap Chineese imitation for which I am out of solutions except for this last format tool.

Let me know if it works
