SanDisk Vault Problem in Storage Devices Posted September 30, 2020 Hey guys, So today I bought a brand new SanDisk ultra 32g. I inserted it into my system and I instantly opened CrystalDiskMark to check the device's speed. After it finished, I opened the device and i found 2 files there. [SanDiskSecureAccessV3.1_win.exe, SanDiskSecureAccess Settings] I was wondering what it was for... so I opened the .exe file and I setup a password. 2 Seconds later the device became write-protected and I CANNOT delete, format, delete the vault that was created, move files, or load files into the USB. (basically it became inoperable & useless to me) I tried contacting SanDisk support but they said nothing can be done and I should return the device. I tried some basic "diskpart.exe" commands but nothing helped. [select disk# > attr disk clear readonly] - No luck there. I also tried poking around inside of the vault program ~ it looks something like this image. There is no option to delete the vault or revert the changes. (at least to what i could see) So here I am, in a time of great need, I reach out to you guys. Is there any hope? I sure "hope" to hear from you guys soon!
