I have tried this, and also other suggested variances gleaned from the Interent, including reformatting the drive. Because the disk is locked it will not let me do anything at all. I have drawn a complete blank on being able to write anything further on the disk. At least I can read what is already saved, which includes several downloaded program files, all of which are readable. So I have now given up!
