Today I was at Windsor Castle and could kick myself. I inadvertently moved the EV value to -2, and it affected a bunch of photos thus under exposing them. Very disappointed in myself... Can I correct this big mistake in post processing by selecting no EV correction as I was shooting Raw? First time I made this mistake, would appreciate your insights.

Thanks, Larry

You actually correct it by selecting +2 EV to compensate.  With luck, the photos will look fine depending upon what was underexposed.  Depending on taste and what is underexposed, you may even find using less will be satisfactory.  Let's just hope you don't need more.  And don't worry about the mistake.  Now you know that the lock switch is there for a reason and you can get in the habit of either using it or check you pics on the back lcd once in a blue to remind you that you have switched settings by accident or on purpose and may need to switch them again.  Good luck recovering the photos.
