“Media is write protected” error in Bittorent (or any torrent program)

If you get the titled error (“Media is write protected”) out of nowhere and it’s driving you nuts, try the following:

Hit Windows-R and bring up the Run dialog box.

Type “cmd” in the box and watch the DOS-like screen pop up.

Type “diskpart” in the DOS-like window.

Next, select the volume you’re having troubles with (i.e. “select volume C”).

After it’s been selected, type:

“attributes volume clear readonly”

Give it a second, and that should do it. You should now be able to set permissions as you like on the selected volume.
