I have no idea why it happened, I've only managed to download a single game on it ( SW Battlefront ) and it became read only!

I cannot download any games on it ( using steam at least ) and the disk itself says that its read only!

Its a 128GB ADATA SU800.

I've tried to change it in the propeties but I get an error saying: An error occured while applying attributes to the file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Comm...\dao360.dll Access is denied.

When I try to change a specific folder - i.ex the Star Wars Battlefront folder, It gets the attribute bar going - completes - and it is read only anyways, also, new folders that I create are instantly read only too.

Please Help!

Sometimes a SSD will go read only if it is close to failing. 

 

Download and run Seatools for Windows or the SSD manufacturer may have their own diagnostic utility. Run the short and long tests.

Open an elevated command prompt. On Windows 10 press the Windows key + X. Select cmd as admin

 

type the following commands

 

diskpart

list disk

select disk X     Where X is the number associated with the SSD. If the boot disk it's probably 0.

attributes disk

 

copy and post the output

As you can see, the disk is not read only so something else causing the problem, a permissions issue which I don't have much experience with. 

 

If you create a new user account and login to it do you still have the problem of access denied?

I am not sure why this is.

 

Open an elevated command prompt. Type:

 

net user administrator /active:yes

 

This will enable the hidden administrator account. Login to it. Same problem?

 

If you have the same problem in the administrator account then do the following.

 

Download Windows Repair and only check the two boxes for resetting file and registry permissions. Run it in an admin account.

It seems to be stuck at 40/44 repair jobs.

The CMD that it opens is all grey without anything in it

You only checked the two boxes, correct? I would let it run for awhile longer. Resetting permissions can take some time.

 

Right click the the windows repair exe file and select run as administrator or run the Windows Repair Tool in the Administrator Account.

Do you still get the access denied error? You may need to reboot.
