I'm going crazy on this. Started a while ago on USB keys... where everything was write protected. I did a bunch of commands, DOS and modified the registry etc... it worked for the usb keys. Was able to format and use them again. Now I'm at it again with an external USB drive. Trying to format the ext. HDD doesn't work. Not in Windows or AOMEI.
If I plug it in another computer there's no problem.
My login changed too a little while ago... where I only had my main account... now it has administrator... not sure if it's related but sure seems like it.
Thanks, merci *S*
