Welcome to our series of tutorials on the Microsoft Windows 10 that help you understand the features of the upcoming Windows 10.
This tutorial will show you how to use Microsoft Diskpart feature to enable or disable write protection on a hard drive for all users in Windows 10.
This method will also work for older versions of Windows like Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Write protection (read-only) on a disk prevents anyone from intentionally or accidentally changing its contents. This effectively means you cannot use the drive in any sort of meaningful way.
Open up the elevated command prompt (command prompt with administrator privileges)
NOTE: You can’t write protect the Windows drive.
