TFW: Your favorite and fastest USB drive writes its last write and gets locked as read-only.



@feonixrift In the past all my USB sticks just started to get flaky on me. I've had MicroSD cards lock as read-only when they've failed but this is the first time a USB stick has locked. Nice feature. At least I can still access the data already on it to save it to a new drive.

@devrandom I have a ~5 year old one that has randomly gone read-only and I had no idea why, so it's nice to consider this as a possibility.

@thegibson you win my corner of the internet with the best dad joke of the day! 😂
