I have a Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex external drive and I've always used with the eSATA cable. However, today I connected the drive to save some files but it didn't let me, always showing a "write protected" error.
I tried everything I found on the internet, mainly to clean attributes and take ownership (it complains to be write protected). Then, I connected the drive with a USB 3.0 cable and it worked!
Does anyone know why is that happening and how to solve it? I really need to use the eSATA cable because the USB one is not mine.
