Cannot access drive in Windows 7 after scandisk lockup, but can in safe mode

I ran scandisk on my external USB drive due to the inability to delete a few files. Windows asked me if I wanted to unmount the drive before the scan, warning me that it would be unusable until the scan was finished, and I said yes.

"Check Security.

I believe (but not certain) that the padlock icon on folders refers to NTFS permissions.

Right click the folder and click ""Security"". Make sure your name is there and that there are ticks in the allow column and that no user has ticks in the deny column."
