Tweak the Registry.

Use regedit to change dword value.

Enable and Disabling of USB write protect using regedit

1 - Enabling USB write protect

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies]

“WriteProtect”=dword:00000000

2 - Disabling Write Protect

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies]

“WriteProtect”=dword:00000001
