Ok so here's what happened.
I had been using a USB stick to re-install Windows 10 and quickly reformat my dads laptop. Now I used the existing Windows 10 to create the live USB drive and I guess it write protected the stick.
Now I've been trying a bunch of things to get my stick back:
- Gparted (Format to, Delete)
- Windows Disk Utility
- Linux (Cinnamon?) Disk Utility
- Dispart (clean, recover)
- Windows quick format
So I pretty much am just getting errors
Unable to format because of I/O Error
Unable to open drive read-write. Drive opened read-only
Unable to format because it's opened read-only
If you have any suggestions on what to do. I have a Linux and a Windows 10 installation so I can try both :)
