There are several things work behind locking HDD specially inaccessibility of software directly on your HDD. Three major causes are-

1.      Trying to set up an additional OS.

2.      Trying to fdisk your HDD.

Hi Angela King,

I guess you are getting this lock error when you try to access your hard drive. You can unlock your hard disk if you have enough privilege to unlock  or lock your hard disk.

You can make it through MS – DOS command prompt. Here is command to unlock drive.

UNLOCK [Drive name you want to unlock]:

 e.g. unlock c:

After this command it will ask you to confirm your action by doing so you can unlock your hard drive.

There are few tools available on internet you can get one from HDD Guru.
