Re: Input/output error



I am not sure that it occurs once a week. It occurs randomly like once a
week to once in 6 months. I am having this problem since about 6 months.
The very first time, I didnt pay much attention. Now , I have seen it
occur 4 times in last 6 months. 

I don't do any backup on it
