Drive Image 7 "Media Is Write Protected"

  Bapou 23:12 03 Jun 2004

Using DI 7 on a regular basis to back up C to D drive I normally am asked if the existing image should be overwritten. Clicking Yes the copying proceeds.

On this last occasion I was presented with "The Media is write protected" dialogue. To get around this I create a new folder and proceed.

Question is: Why has this suddenly changed? There is nothing untoward from previous images, just a regular cleanup of system, uninstalling an unused program etc and updating the image.

No idea but you can change it by going into explorer, right click the Image file and change the file attributes to Archive remove the tick in write protect
