hi I have a problem, my D drive suddenly can't be edited, I can't delete files, add folders, I can only access folders that are already there. I've tried several solutions on google but they haven't worked. the solution i tried like "diskpart -> list disk -> select disk -> attributes disk clear readonly" i have also tried chkdsk but it doesn't work either. not only that I have also done a solution to turn off write protected in the registry. when I checked my disk using file explorer by doing "right click on disk -> properties -> tools -> error checking " there I found the message "Repair this drive".

Please help me :)

it's ssd, the model name is adata SX6000LNP.
I've checked using the ADATA SSD toolbox, and it's still in good health and I've also done a full diagnostic on the drive and it says it's in good condition .

what should i do

Copy the files from that drive (you should have backups anyway), do a clean format on it, see if it works OK after that. Seems there is some issue with it despite the diagnostic saying it's OK.

i cant format it, it says "this disk is write protected". Also i check the drive with "DISKPART -> list disk -> select disk 1 -> attributes disk" and it says "read only : no" but still i cant do anything with it.

Is this SSD damaged and can't be repaired?

Can you do a clean on it with diskpart ? Then try to create a new partition and format it once it's cleaned.
