Write Protect Ventoy USB disk - cscs - 06-17-2021

Ventoy feature list has a item call
  • USB drive write-protected support
However, I don't seem to find a way to do it. Document area seem not mentioning it too.
Anyone using this feature?

This is not a software feature.
It means that: If your USB drive has write protect feature, you can use it.
Some USB drive has a hardware write protect switch, if you turn it on, then the USB drive is write protected.

If you have such a USB drive. Then after you install Ventoy, you can turn the switch on to protect the data in the USB.
Ventoy can work well even you turn the write protect switch on.

Some other boot software need the USB writable. If you turn the write protect switch on it will not work.
