Fix Input /Output Device Error on External Hard Drive

Input /Output Device Error on External Hard Drive, Data Lost?

User1: I can’t access my 500GB Samsung external hard drive. Windows says I/O error when I want to access the external hard drive. What is I/O error? How can I solve this problem? I don’t care about the external hard drive, but I can’t afford to lose the data on the drive. There are lots of important files on this drive. Can somebody give me a clue? Thanks a lot!

User2: I met a terrible problem when I tried to transfer some data from my 250GB Seagate external hard drive to my computer’s hard drive. It said that I can’t copy the files due to I/O device error. I can’t access the files on the external hard drive, either. I have searched online for the solution. Most of them advised me to format the external hard drive, but I don’t want to lose the data on the drive. So I write a threat here to hope that somebody can give me a proper solution.

User3: I always get the same error message "G:\ is not accessible. The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error" when I access my external hard drive. It is a 500GB WD external hard drive which contains about 2 year’s backup files from my hard drive. I want to fix the error as well as getting back the data. Is there any method?

Is Data Recoverable When External Has Input /Output Error?
When the external hard drive shows I/O device error, the most common solutions include,
1. Change a computer or USB port to connect the external hard drive
2. Format the external hard drive
3. Run a reliable anti-virus application to check if there is virus on your external hard drive and kill the virus

It is not sure that the method above can fix the I/O error on your external hard drive. Besides, as you may know, formatting and virus can cause further data loss from the external hard drive. Therefore, it is recommended you to perform data recovery first before you try any way to fix the error. The external drive recovery software can help you recover all types of files even if the I/O error exists. The software can free scan the external hard drive to find the data on the drive and then allows you to select the files you want to recover. You can free recover and save all the found files with the external drive recovery software.
