Two days ago my flash drive’s files were corrupted so I reformatted it. But then when I copied a file it said the disk is write protected. I removed the drive, re-inserted it, then tried to write the file again, which seemed to work – but then I got the error again and my files showed up as zero kilobytes! I tried reformatting again, but still get the write protection error. I’ve Googled this problem and tried everything to remove the write protection or/and format the drive but nothing seems to work. I did the regedit, the diskpart, and installed a bunch of tools no luck. some of the tools won’t detect the drive. pls help.
