    Intel 750 SSD only showing up as read only after Windows updated

    Zoid

      My windows 10 rebooted yesterday for a Windows update.  When I tried to use it afterward my Intel 750 SSD (400GB) is now set as read only.  I checked with Diskpart reports "Current Read-only State : Yes" and I can't seem to figure out how to turn that off.

       

      I downloaded the Intel SSD tool but it only shows the drive and only let interact with it or display SMART status, etc.

       

      I can get my files of the drive, but I'm just curious why its gone into this state and if that's a permanent thing or some sort of setting.

          Hello Zoid,

          Thanks for posting in our forum. We would like to provide some suggestions that may help you with this situation:

          -First, try to plug the SSD in a different port and test it
          -If that does not work, please try the following:

          On the Cmd prompt launch "diskpart.exe"
           
          Run the following commands on the diskpart prompt
           
          LIST DISK
           
          This will list all the disks in your system.
          Note down the number of your new SSD, then do the following
           
          SELECT DISK x
           
          Where X is the number of your Intel® SSD 750, then do the following
           
          DETAIL DISK
           
          This will list all the details of the selected disk.
          Check if the ReadOnly flag is set to Yes.
          Then execute the following command
           
          ATTR DISK CLEAR READONLY

          Please let us know if this worked or not, so we can check for further recommendations.

          Regards,
