Test your drive ... you may have a failing drive.
You could also have file system corruption ... run a chkdsk /r from the command prompt.

First thing though ... make sure you have a backup of your data while you can get it.

It turned out the drive was indeed failing. I proved this by backing up all the data then doing a low level reformat of the drive. After the reformat, I used a Ubuntu disk utility that listed how many sectors were spared out. Before the low level reformat (NTFS) 4095 sectors were spared out. I sassume that was a limit. After the low level reformat, 2311 sectors were spared out. I decommissioned the drive.
