Filled under: ,

Don't you want to share your valuable data to any one?? if yes then we can help you..! This s a small trick to prevent others to steal data from your PC through USB storage devices!
This is a registry tweak to write-protect (to make read-only) USB storage devices (pen drive, external hard disk, etc.) on your PC. Just follow the steps given below:
1) Open the "Registry Editor".(You can download Tune up utilities to find Registry Editor. click on this link for download free HERE)
2) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\StorageDevicePolicies.
3) Right-click on "StorageDevicePolicies" and create a new DWORD(32-bit value) and name it as WriteProtect.
4) Change its value data from 0 to 1 to write-protect USB storage devices.
5) Click OK and exit.
6) Restart your PC.
Having done the above steps, you'll be able to write-potect USB storage devices, which will prevent others to steal data from your PC through USB storage devices.
To remove the write-protection, just change back the value data of the DWORD "WriteProtect" from 1 to 0 in the fourth step.
NOTE: Back up your registry before making any changes to it.
