Have you faced the situation of write protection in your office PC ? I really faced this situation in my new office laptop provided by my organization. 🙁  Actually, organizations are always disabling the USB protection on their PC to provide PC protection.

Today i am going to Show you how to remove the Write protection on USB drive implemented by the Windows group Policy.

With Windows Server 2008 & Windows 7, Microsoft comes with a new feature of implementing policy on Removable Storage. Actually whenever we are applying group policy, it’s changing the registry value.

To remove the USB protection, open the Registry editor ( Run > regedit) and navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Removable Storage Devices

double-click on each value and change Deny_Write and Deny_Read value to 1 to 0.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsbStor
in the right-pane, double-click on the Start value and change this value to 3 .
