Seriously, write protected??

My Sandisk Ultra which i bought about two months ago, it is now showing write protected, i cant format or anything to revive it.

i know Sandisk USB drive is suffering for this issues, and the only solution is return it back.

but the disk is now full of confidential information which i will not let it in others hand.

so what should i do?

What CAN you do? You can destroy it, kiss your money for it good-bye and purchase another drive, or you can return it to SanDisk for a warranty replacement. Those are your only 2 options.

Contact SanDisk, explain your security concerns and see if they have a plan to protect your data. I believe I remember someone who had this issue and they authorized him to physically destroy the drive (to prevent the data from being compromised) and ship back the pieces.
