Have you tested the USB stick you have is healthy?
Have you checked the health of your internal drive (There are tools on the Ultimate Boot CD which can test this for you).

Yes I have checked them.

Nikhil (njoy4ever) said : #4

Right now i am running gsmartcontrol.
I will share the report.

Nikhil (njoy4ever) said : #5

Its not working...
What else can i try?

Where do you get the IO errors? What is the actual error?

Nikhil (njoy4ever) said : #7

It is my laptop hard drive that has got I/O error. I have attached a
screenshot of the hardware test i performed on my laptop through bios.

Replying to the automatic email and attaching a file doesn't work. You need to use imagemagick or similar to make a URL of the image.

Looks like a bad disk. I had this and replaced the drive. Issue went away.

You can verify this with the HDD tools on the Ultimate Boot CD (free to download).

How can i back up the data to an external hard drive?

Ultimate Boot CD and burn to CD, or transfer to USB. There are drive tools on there.

Can you help with this problem?
