Yes. I used a Google search to find a solution. I thought I had posted the link . The solution allowed me to clear the drive attributes from read only via the Command prompt .
Thanks for asking.

Solution I used: Only With Diskpart
  1. Type "diskpart" in the black Run window and press Enter.
  2. Type "list disk" and press Enter.
  3. Type "select disk d," replacing the "d" with the drive letter you are working on. ...
  4. Type "attributes disk clear readonly" and press Enter. ...
  5. Type "Exit" and press Enter to close the window.
