How to Set Disk/USB/SD Readonly or Clear Readonly

You can set media as read-only to protect data stored on the partition from being changed by unwanted people. You can read data from a read-only partition, but you are not allowed to modify, copy, delete, write or move any information on this partition. Therefore, it is useful to set an important partition as readonly to prevent careless modification to this partition. You can also clear the readonly attribute when you want to modify, copy, write, delete or transfer data on this partition.
