I have two USB drives and a thumb drive. I was able to delete and write to it until today. I was using Apricorn SATA 3.0 clone wire and software to clone my new SSD (which happened successfully) but now I cant write/delete/modify any of my USB devices. I tried the Regedit method, diskpart method, giving full control permissions as well, but none of those worked. I even tried plugging one of my USB devices into a different PC and got the same write protection error.
Any ideas? I'm on windows 8 too...
