    DiskPart: Error encountered, Access Denied.


    I have an 8 GB usb flash drive. I am trying to format it using command prompt and disk part, but when I'm trying to clean the partitions, I get this message:Click image for larger version I don't know how I can fix this. Can someone please help me? Thanks a lot!
