Though small, USB Write Protect is a useful utility which helps protect data written to connected USB devices which prevents data on USB drives from being modified or deleted.
Using the program helps prevent accidental deletion of modification of files on your thumb drive (or other connected devices). It works by activating OS-based features, much like the Windows Explorer properties window.
Activating USB Write Protect is easy and protection is activated seconds after plugging in a device to a USB 2 or USB 3.0 mass storage device. Devices should be unplugged before running USB Write Protect as it is only activated when a device is recognized.
