    Any chance that there is a hidden switch on the flash drive?
    See this link with image:
    [2017] Fix Diskpart failed to clear disk attributes - EaseUS

    Sorry if this does not fix it as I'm not aware of any other troubleshooting steps.
    No switch. Thanks again for all of your help! These things are like $7 so I think at this point I'll just toss it...

    It is ridiculous that Windows basically trashes a perfectly good USB stick when it creates a recovery disk...
    But it doesn't - at least, not for this 1803 recovery drive I made five months ago...

    Something else may have set it as Read-only, I still think the most likely reason is that the usb itself is dying.
