comment Why my external drive turned in read only mode?
@ernie: Ok looks like actually was just a GPT issue, I reformatted everything, done a lot of tests, wrote a lot of things, read a lot of things. The HDD looks fine now.

comment Why my external drive turned in read only mode?
Yea infact I'm re-writing the files I've written before but with a GPT table, I think it will solve the previous issue (I've tested the drive both in windows and linux, tested a lot of softwares). What I understood is that GPT can still create a lot of issues.

@ernie: Looks like it was an issue with me that didn't use GPT (I used MBR), at least I've run tests for 3 days with HDD Scan, WD DataGuard and Bad-blocks (and HD Tune), bad-blocks discovered "a lot" of bad blocks (from 2tb and over) so I suppose it doesn't support gpt, same for hd tune. HD scan and wd dataguard didn't find any errors. I suppose gpt is not supported everywhere. Maybe bad-blocks work better if you have debian unstable.

Thanks a lot, I also agree with you, I'll let you know in some days, when tests will finish.

comment Why my external drive turned in read only mode?
No while I was performing the test, I was on a Debian distro on my laptop, so a "normal" computer, connected through USB. I can't connect through sata because it's a boxed HDD (can't remove from it). I'm running some testing softwares, a lot of them stuck at some point so I imagine the drive it's actually faulty (the 4th in a month... I have no idea how to buy a working drive now).
