Called Microsoft Tech Support, as I've had around 100 'Warnings' a day in the event viewer about Source: Disk, Description: The IO operation at logical block address 8ea3e8 for Disk 1 was retried. (the bolded area changes every time.)

EDIT : THERE IS NO FREEZING OF MY SYSTEM. SMART, and Intel's Disk Diagnostic, and sfc /scannow all come back 100% "fine", with no errors, etc.

EDIT: The disk is an Intel 330 SSD. It's runing in AHCI mode, and under Win 7 had NO issues of this sort. (I check my logs religiously ... ie on Sundays, after church.)

Part of phone conversation:

MS: This is normal.

Me: This didn't show up/happen in Windows 7.

MS: Oh, that's because logging in Windows 8 is different.

So my request for the NW community is thus:

EVERYONE please, check your EVENT VIEWER > Windows Logs > System.

Click the "Source" header to sort ... or use a FILTER and beside "by source" select disk (with a lowercase d).

Post back here a few things.

1: Windows Version

2: Hard Drive (Type (SSD/HDD), Manufacture (Intel, WD, Seagate, etc)

3: Did you see the error "The IO operation at logical block address [RANDOM ADDRESS] for Disk 1 was retried."

Thank you in advance, for your help.

You have a bad hard drive. No need to run a poll on other people's behaviors.

I do not have any disk events since I upgraded to Windows 8. The last one I have is dated 9/20/2012 and it's for a USB thumb drive.

What type of drive is that disk, and have you scanned it to make sure there's nothing wrong with it?

Not the issue, there (as I edited in P1) no freezing, etc.

Read his post carefully. While you may not be getting the freezes, the post does address tye specific error you mentioned.

I would at least try it.

Tried it, and am still receiving the error. :s

So just to check. In Disk Management, what drive shows up as disk 1?

Hmm. I checked mine and I do see an entry like that once. It looks like in my case it was for a thumb drive though.

Looking again at your log that is a ton of them. Have you done a long test on the HD already, or just a short one?

Intel Toolbox Quick Diagnostic & Long Diagnostic, SMART Check, sfc /scannow, and I turned off the laptop, did a headstand, holding the SSD chanting something someone in Africa said would stop the problem ... no change, except my head hurts now. ;)

Interesting link. I did notice a load of storahci events when attempting to connect a SSD via a toaster dock to my computer. (Actually for that matter, it occurs each time I connect a mechanical drive via the toaster, but only occurs once. For the SSD it was frequent and made the drive unusable.)

My thoughs are thus:

Using Disk Manager, I'm going to shrink drive 0 (Momentus XT), and move files from "D" to the partitioned area.

Move windows to the XT drive, and see if I have problems. If not, then I'll just sell the Intel 330 and say "meh" to SSD's for now.

Just to clarify what I was saying earlier. The system drive in my desktop is an Intel SSD. I don't think the fact that it is an SSD is necessarily a problem.

it could be a driver, controller, port, or cable issue as well.

I used to have Win 7 on this drive, and in the same spot, and it had no problems.

I don't know ... I'll just keep poking away at things, I guess.

I REALLY wish Asus would release Win 8 drivers for it's systems (i.e. my laptop is the G53SW-A1).
