    USB drive having SSD shows read only


    Recently, I connected a new SSD as a USB drive. It shows "Write Protected" in windows 10. However, same one if I connect to Windows 8.1, then the write protection is not there. Can not do driver update under windows 10 as it is write protected. Has anyone faced similar problem? Your assistance will be appreciated.

    Windows 10 Pro x86 and x64 dual boot

    I had this on my c drive SSD, I signed windows out and the disk was no longer write protected. Why it happened in the first place, I don't know.
