Disable or Enable Write Protection
As the name implies, Disable or Enable Write Protection aims to help you quickly activate or deactivate the write protection on removable flash drives connected to your computer.
It is not wrong to say that simplicity is the defining characteristic of this application. The interface consists of a single window, comprising just two buttons, one for enabling and the other for disabling the USB device protection.
As an easier and quicker alternative, these options are also available in the context menu that pops out when right-clicking on the system tray icon of the application. Thus, Disable or Enable Write Protection runs silently in the tray, providing one-click enabling or disabling of the USB write protection.
Once you opt for locking or un-protecting your portable storage device, a notification message is displayed in a pop-up window, letting you know that the procedure is finalized. In order to test the efficiency of the application, the only option is to try to modify a file stored on the flash drive.
Please note that this program does not allow you to select the drives you want to protect or un-protect. Its actions apply to all the devices that are connected to the computer at that time.
Write-protecting your USB flash drive is important in order to prevent other users from making modifications, deleting and creating new files on the storage device or altering its content in any way. Disable or Enable Write Protection is a lightweight tool that can come in handy for securing the files and folders on a removable storage device by blocking writing rights and making the content read-only.
