    Hard disk error write protected. Try some solutions and they don't suc


    I have this error on external hard drive.access denied.Recognize the hard drive I can navigate on it but I can't write or delete. Already try the administrator permission options for full control and it doesn't work.In the disk manager, "read only" appears.I can apply changes to be able to have the disk with total control without affecting files because they are more than 600GB of occupied space.

    First capture shows the partitions.Second folder shows that I cannot modify the drive letter ..Third capture shows the main folder that contains more files.

    @Cast -

    Can you tell me what HDD this is - USB 3.0?

    Have you tried formatting it with NTFS?
    If not then take a peek at this -

    Remove Write Protection on Internal/External Hard Drive/USB/SD in Windows 10/8/7 – EaseUS

    You may not need all of the steps. We can go from there, if required.

    I just checked and the address still doesn't work.Your homepage doesn't work either, try edge, chrome, firefox, explorer.

    The applied method did not work.Some liveCd can do something like that.
    Solved with the attributes disk clear command applied in administrator. I appreciate the willingness to help.
