Disable or Enable Write Protection

Right protect the USB stick to prevent modifications"
A review by John

Portable storage devices have evolved over the years from the floppy disks to memory cards and flash drives that have the capacity that exceeds its predecessors in thousand folds. The proliferation of portable flash drives does come with its own peculiar setbacks. Prominent among the challenges of using these portable devices is its notoriety for spreading virus infections from one computer to another.

The program has a simple interface with two buttons that do what the application claims. The first to enable the write protection to secure the device and the other to disable the write protection so you can store new content on the device. The user receives a status message once the application performs any action.

Some portable storage devices do have buttons that can set the device to read-only mode to prevent write access, but many others do not have this feature. However, with the disable or enable write protection application, you can protect your flash drive from getting infected by setting the device to read-only mode when using it on other computers.

Besides the prevention of infections, it also serves as a handy avenue of ensuring that the content of a flash drive is not tampered with by a third-party.

Disable or Enable Write Protection is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in security related category and is available to all software users as a free download.
