It almost seems like there's some weird play here between Sandboxie, the NTFS.sys filesystem driver, and the fileinfo.sys filter driver (responsible for doing prefetch and superfetch/readyboost).

Given this info, it almost looks like there's some confusion here between NTFS.sys decrementing the FCB to remove it from the lock list, but we crashed before the IRP could be created. I also see the prefetch filter involved, so I'm wondering if something on the system is overwriting memory (for what it's worth, NTFS.sys tried to write to 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF, which of course is going to fail) because this should really never happen. Someone (specifically, likely some filter or system security driver) is working behind the scenes on IRP generation. Given what Sandboxie does, I'm quite curious as to what the system would do without that installed...

It's hard to say if sandboxie is a part of it or not - the only thing I can say is that the prefetch was running at the time, so unless your removable drive is being used as a superfetch cache, I'm not sure what happened 100%. It could just be a timing issue you'll never see again, honestly - it's very hard to say.
