A write-protected USB (USB-ROM) is similar to CD-ROM, where files can be read or copied from the USB, but nothing can be saved or copied onto it.
This can help prevent you, or anyone else, from accidentally deleting or saving over important files. A write-protected USB is safer as it cannot be infected by any viruses or other malicious activity.
Unlike other storage devices like magnetic tapes, compact discs or memory cards, USB flash drives do not have any built-in write-protection mechanism. Acutrack works on the controller level and will ensure that your USB media is write-protected and your content is secure.
