Just getting started trying out TransWiz. My first attempt at creating a transfer file the process threw an I/O error and the program exited. Now my flash drive is reporting it is write protected. I can't delete the partially created profile .zip file or reformat the drive. How can I make this flash drive usable again?

It may just be that it is a bad drive. I've made several attempts to make it writable through diskpart. It says it completes but still shows as read only. A 'clean' in diskpart returns an I/O error. Also ran a chkdsk on it which found LOTS of issues. Ran diskpart again after chkdsk but same results.
