    All HDD have gone to write protected other than C:/ ????


    HI Guys
    I am posting this as a separate issue as i have another ticket open re other issues
    Other than my C:/ all my other HDD have gone to write protected and cannot fix it.
    I have tried diskpart attributes disk set readonly solution but didnt work.

    I have not installed anything on my side but as you can see from other ticket.
    My partner installed a link from their workplace to work from home.
    I think it installed some type of image but would it block me from my HDDs?

    I have no idea how to fix the HDD issue any ideas welcome please

    Are you selecting correct disk. To display the attributes on the selected disk, type: ATTRIBUTES DISK

    Your disk 3 is identified by name ( DaddyBear SSD (D:) ) as an SSD, not an HDD. Going 'read-only' is a typical protection mode of a failing SSD in order to give you time to back up the data. The exact behaviour depends on the brand. Intel, for example, is designed to enter read-only when the drive's specified lifetime writes has been exceed.

    Intel said:
    Solid-state drives may enter into a locked read-only mode once the over-provisioned space depletes and the drive exceeds its lifetime writes. The Media Wear-Out Indicator under the SMART attribute E9 measures lifetime writes.
    SSD is in Locked Read-Only Mode

    Once in self-imposed read-only mode, Intel SSDs have also been found to shut down completely when next powered down. So do NOT turn off the PC until you have backed up all the data from this drive.

    The driveís media wear indicator ran out shortly after 700TB, signaling that the NANDís write tolerance had been exceeded. Intel doesnít have confidence in the drive at that point, so the 335 Series is designed to shift into read-only mode and then to brick itself when the power is cycled. Despite suffering just one reallocated sector, our sample dutifully followed the script. Data was accessible until a reboot prompted the drive to swallow its virtual cyanide pill.
