The HDD is locked when its in use usually. The LOCK command blocks direct access by programs that can corrupt file names and/or destroy disk data, resulting in the loss of files on your disk.

-Go to Start>Run>type: chkdsk /r and hit enter.
-You will be prompted and choose Y and reboot.

The same as before, you would type unlock followed by drive location.
Let us know how that goes.
