disk partition shows as:
Current Read-only State : Yes
Read-only : No
Boot Disk : No
Pagefile Disk : No
Hibernation File Disk : No
Crashdump Disk : No
Clustered Disk : No
admin supposedly has read/write according to windows (so running something as admin; i still get write protection can't save files to the disk)
i've tried setting permissions; and using diskpart to clear the read only flag. Then I tried copying the files off to another drive and formatting (Couldn't get the files to copy.)
Then I tried formatting (can't- disk is write protected.)
not sure what to try next. any suggestions?

If you want something more specific i think your gonna have to ask for it. not in my life have i seen a more obtuse tool and i'm a bsd user...
Thank you for your time. We would like to inform you that we are still checking in order to provide you the best answer possible. Thank you for your patience. Please, should you have any further questions or doubts, please do not hesitate to contact us.
I'm ok with you taking your time but if we can't fix it i think my 1year rma is up in a few days; this upcoming weekend (saturday i think) so i'd really like this sorted.
Have you had the opportunity to run the tool informed previously as admin? if not, please do so. Also, we need to take a look at the SMART details, please send us this piece of information as well as a clear picture of the drive where it shows its label.
If possible, could you provide us information about the environment that this drive is installed? Please bear in mind that this is a consumer drive, therefore, if this drive is being used on a server environment, it can be degraded. This drive supports up to 70GB per day, if more is applied as this is common on a server environment, the expected life time will be highly affected.
as stated- if you have specific command your looking for me to run sure let me know; i copy/pasted the results (including asking for smart details) above. Nothing seems to work in that tool.
It's standard windows 10 environment ( I bought the drive the weekend win10 was released ) but it's just a game drive (StarCraft II) because i didn't like running it in ramdisk too much setup time.
Other then that, a few small steam games. It's all that's ever been installed, patch every few months whenever blizzard releases one. I'd be surprised if it's pushed 400gb(its own size) in its entire lifetime. Nevermind 70gb/day. Nowhere near.
We know that Windows® 10 comes with the generic NVMe* driver that works for NVMe* SSDs.
In cases like this, where the SSD is not being seen by the Intel® Data Center Tool may be due to Windows* driver.
Please, try the Intel NVMe* Driver that we recommend to use for this kind of SSD model. For your convenience, here is the link to it: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/23929/Intel-SSD-Data-Center-Family-for-NVMe-Drivers Intel® SSD Data Center Family for NVMe Drivers
Once you have successfully installed these drivers, please try to write/read files to the SSD and let us know how it goes.
In this case, it may be that the Disk is set to "Read Only" and this is preventing you from formatting the drive. Please, bear in mind that you can do this procedure for the the partition, volume and disk. Based on your description you can use the command below. Check this link also for further information: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766465(v=ws.10).aspx DiskPart Command-Line Options the example below shows the command being used for the disk but you can use similar command for the partition.
On the Cmd prompt launch "diskpart.exe"
Run the following commands on the diskpart prompt
This will list all the disks in your system.
Note down the number of your new SSD, then do the following
SELECT DISK x
Where X is the number of your Intel® SSD, then do the following
This will list all the details of the selected disk.
Check if the ReadOnly flag is set to Yes.
Then execute the following command
ATTR DISK CLEAR READONLY
This should clear the flag on the disk, please try to initialize the SSD again.
If the issue persists, we may have a readonly flag on an existing volume, run the same command, but now on the volume:
SELECT VOLUME x
ATTR VOLUME CLEAR READONLY
