i have 1TB external HDD and 600GB internal, so i have decided to swap them and make the 1TB as internal and the 600GB as external, when i plug the 600GB as USB to my pc it is shown as Unallocated, but when i try to format it it says " Media is write protected " so is the HDD physically write protected and there is no way to use it as external?
If it is not physically write protected, what could i do to be able to make it working?
When i set it back as internal it works but i can’t format it, and it is shown as “system and primary in Disk management”
While the system is installed on the 1TB! I don’t know why it is shown as system!! and i guess this is why i can’t format it or use it as external!

thank you for your time, any help is greatly appreciated.
