The file is not the one with write protection, it's the drive you are copying it to, unless you don't have access to the file at all to do anything with it. You can take ownership of the file if it's the file.

If it's the drive, it could have a small switch to turn on/off write protection. And check rights for your account on the folder you are trying to copy things to.

I'm trying to copy from Total Commander and this message pops up "Please remove the write protection!"
I have full control on that file.

Can you copy it outside of the program? The write protection message is coming from the drive you are copying to, not the file. It's saying the destination drive has write protection turned on. The program may have a write protection option so you don't copy things accidentally, check the options.
