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,
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.
