So for some reason my external hard driver is write protected. How do I fix this? There is data on it. It's an encased one, it cannot be opened, model is WD and it only has a power button. Please help! Much appreciated! I already applied the usual fix online through cmd with the attributes disk clear readonly at the end. It did not work, it said it failed.
