I'm attempting to back up files from a hard disk into a flash drive, but the hard disk files do not allow themselves to be copied. Every attempt made meets with the message: "Cannot copy... the disk is write protected. Remove the write protection or use another disk". Does anyone out there know how to remove write protection from a windows xp hard drive?

Are you logged on as an administrator? Are they your files - you, being the owner?
