My Book Duo is write protected

No idea how this happened, but the whole mirrored drive is write protected. I can’t write anything and I can’t open RAR files that require a password. The Smartware program crashes with no reason given.
there are 5 WD programs listed in Programs and Features, but I’m afraid to uninstall them because I don’t want to loose complete access to the drive.

Hi hajrb,

Does this issue happen when your computer wakes up from sleep or hibernation mode? If yes, you can refer below article in this concern.
