What is an Input/Output error and can it be fixed on DroboFS?

Hi there folks,

I’m getting an ‘Input/Output’ error on one of the files/directories contained in my DroboFS.

I’m not really sure what this type of error is nor what I should do to fix it. Can anyone please help me with some ideas?

I’ve been reading around and I’m getting the sense that it could be an indicator of some form of hardware failure on the drives themselves… but this is as far as I’ve got. I don’t really know what to do about confirming this/fixing this in the context of the drives being installed in the DroboFS.

[]Should I run some form of disk check/repair on the DroboFS? (if so, how?)
]Should I bite the bullet and completely reset the disks on the DrobFS?
[*]Are there any other suggestions?

Hoping to hear from you. Thanks in advance for your time and thoughts on this.
