I can't believe this! Both of my external USB hdd's are now saying "the disk is write-protected" when I try to paste any file to them. 😣

So I want to uninstall the drivers, to try and fix this, but I just wanna ask, I don't actually lose files when I uninstall drivers in device manager?

Sounds like you have something else going on.


No, you won't lose files from removing devices/drivers from device manager. However, it also probably won't resolve your issue.

lol, it worked, but I did have to delete that registry I manually insert before!
