Drive locked in READ ONLY mode.
Windows 11 ran update and system crashed after restart saying MBR not found. Had to reloaded windows on another drive, tried to format, partition, disk manager, partition magic even tried to edit registry and all other ways I could find to recover the drive, but nothing worked to remove READ ONLY status. I don’t care about the data, just want the drive working again.
Going to try and return to WD for a new one, too soon to say what they will do.
