Write protected HDD partition

Managed to get back a lost partition after reinstallof windows, used "Find and mount" as other partition finders would not allow access to drive
However the drive is write protected and I cant delete old files off it.
Have tried google solutions but cant work out how to unwrite protect the partition.
any ideas would be appreciated

Just delete the partition and make a new one. I assume you don't need the files!

Getdataback should be able to bypass any locks
Wiping the drive properly is really simple & effective with Dban.
