Try running chkdsk with either the /r of /f switch, such as chkdsk /r.
You'll be asked if you want it to run the next time you boot up since it
can't lock the drive in Windows. Answer Y. Reboot and let it run and see if
it fixes any errors then.
It's possible the hard drive is giving out. Bouncing around for 4 years
takes its toll on them, too. Download and run the diagnostics from the drive
manufacturer's web site and see if any errors crop up. It's always a good
idea to back up your data before running any drive diagnostics just in case.
