Many USB keys come with a switch that slides up and down to enable or disable the write protection lock. As a first step, we recommend that you verify whether your USB has this switch (normally labelled with a hold

 or locked option). If so, simply unlock the switch and attempt to write.

Another simple solution for disabling write protection is to simply ascertain whether or not your currently file is being viewed in Read Only format. If it is read protected, simple right click on the folder and uncheck the “Read Only” button.

There are many online recovery tools which are related to a specific brand of USB
