I/O Device Error

Attingo recovers daily data from the following storage media with I/O errors:

Common causes for I/O device errors

If Windows reports an I/O (input/output) device error , this means that the data carrier (hard drive, SSD, memory card, USB stick, CD/DVD) has malfunctions during the reading and/or writing access. I/O errors occur during the ongoing operating, while you work on a file or run a program.

The most common causes are:

  • defective sectors (bad blocks)
  • damaged write/read heads
  • faulty modules in the service area
  • File system error (under Linux)
  • damaged data cable
  • SATA or USB interface is damaged

Next steps after data loss induced by an I/O error

  • Don't apply power to the device anymore in order to prevent consequential damage and increase the chances of a successful data rescue.
  • Please tell us what kind of data carrier is affected (hrd drive, SSD, memory card, USB stick, CD/DVD), the exact model number or model name and caapcity of your data carrier.
  • We advise you on our diagnosis services and the data rescue process. For an express data rescue our staff is available all around the clock.
  • Take a look at our packaging tips so your device arrives at our clean room laboratories safely.
