C drive write protected ?

Laptop Lenovo 4151

Windows 8 pro

 

The C-drive has become write protected.

When I looked on the internet it seems that W8 has a problem when a laptop shuts down during use. W8 seems to lock the HD, ore thinks when starting up again that W8 is already running..

 

I've tried to unlock the HD with diskpart, but diskpart failed to clear disk attributes.

 

What now?

Yes, but that is about an extern USB drive.

The problem that my C drive is locked. Thats the drive with W8 on it.

I haven't personally come across this problem with WIn 8, so can't comment explicitly on that, however, in Win 7 if a shared drive went "write protected", running Windows CheckDisk on it was often enough to get it accessible again..... you might want to see if that also works with Win 8.

 

Cheers,
