Well here it all depends on your Pen Drive/Thumb Drive

And the OS you are using.

Generally speaking however there are 2 ways to Write Protect a Thumb Drive. The first involves flipping a switch on the Thumb Drive to the Write Protected position and the second involves the Software that the Thumb Drive uses to Write Protect the Data on it.

This can also involve the OS in use so without knowing which Make & Model Thumb Drive and what OS it is being used with it's not possible to tell you how to unlock it unless there is a Switch on the actual Thumb Drive. If there is all you need do is move it to the position it's not currently in.
