What were the circumstances around this event? I assume this just started happening within the past day or 2?

What chkdsk tags did you run? Be sure to run chkdsk /r.

it happened Saturday. the day before it started doing this, we had a bad thunderstorm.
tried chkdsk /r. it states "The type of the file system is NTFS."
"Cannot lock current drive."
"Windows cannot run disk checking on the volume because it is write protected."

I wonder if the drive is damaged. Try running a diagnostic on it: HD Diagnostic

Howdy! i took it and had a diagnostic run on it and found out the hard drive had crashed on me! luckily it was still under the manufacture's warranty and i was able to get it repaired for free! thanks for your help! I'll be sure to refer back to this forum in the future!
