The backup operation that started at  has failed with following error code '2155348010'

Last Modified: 2015-08-02
I have read a lot of forums and google search and they all say it's related to the larger HDD.

Let me start by saying it isn't, not in my case.

We use a 1TB HDD for backup. We have 5 of them. They all have been working fine.

recently it started failed, but not everyday, only every 2nd day.

Looking at the log in the eventviewer I saw MSSQL@SBSMonitoring had a error, i fixed this but still failed.
Then did a HDD diagnostic test using HP tool and found one HDD is faulty in the raid5. So i replaced the HDD.

Run the backup again, still failed.

I get the following error in the event viewer.
The backup operation that started at  has failed with following error code '2155348010'

In the WIndows Server Backup I get the following error.
Items Tab:
Backup ended before completing.
Erros Tab:
The requested could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

Currently I am stuck on how to fix this issue.


Thanks in advance.
