   Ist time here and THANX for the inclusion.


Recently, I had a flash drive (specs at end of thread) somehow acquire "read only" (write protection) status. I eventually remove that designation and since the flashdrive "writes"/transfers at less than half the speed it used to. It now writes at 1.8-2.4Mb/s on Win7, 2.4-2.8 on Win 10 and about the same on LM 18.3. I tested other pendrives on the same machines and all the others registered @ 5.5Mb/s or better. I guess what I'm saying is "something" has deterred the drive's transfer/writing speed since the removal of the write protection. So, what might of happened and is there a way to restore the original status of the drive? i.e. can a flashdrive be re-imaged and or rebuilt? The drive is not that old.                    [Kinston DT101 16Gb]
