Definition: A file that is write-protected is a file that has its permissions set such that it can only be read from the disk, but not modified. In relationship to the gaming and cheats arena, some write-protected files may need to be altered to enable a certain code to work properly in a PC game, but this is rare.
Also Known As: read-only, write protected, secured files
Common Misspellings: right-protected right protected
Examples:For the code to work properly, you will need to alter the game.exe file so it is no longer write-protected, and can be modified by the games' patching mod.
