    My Installed HDD suddenly change to read only mode.


    Hello!My Laptop has 2 drives installed local C: OS and D: for data. Suddenly I noticed that my drive D: is in read-only mode. I can confirm this because I checked also in my file recovery tool and I cannot move or delete files from it; even uninstalling a program is not possible. Also, I cannot change the user permissions on the drive D: Luckily I found this solution:https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/change-external-hard-drive-from-read-only-back-to/1cc985e9-01b3-46ac-9108-8bc8e7968f36 and try using the steps until DISKPART> detail disk and found

    Hi Johan,

    It is possible that your
    HDD was unreadable
    causing the error message to appear. We recommend that you perform these troubleshooting steps and check if there are any changes:


    • Shutdown
      your
      PC.

    • Unhooked
      the
      HDD
      and
      turn on
      your
      PC.

    • Reconnect
      your
      HDD
      and
      restart
      your
      PC.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you contact your
    laptop/computer's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We will require a few more information from you to help you further with the issue. Please reply with the following details:

    • In which device are you facing this issue?

    However, you can Disk Defragment on your computer to optimize the drive. To run Disk Defragment please follow the steps from the article

    Defragment your Windows 10 PC

    Alternatively, you can check for the read and write speed of the HDD in task manager. Please follow the steps mentioned below to check the read and write speed of the hard drive:

    1. Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc key together on the keyboard.
    2. Click on Performance tab.
    3. Click on Disk 0.
