Move disk failed

Jul 2, 2020
Hi all
I tried to move disk to newer drive and the operation failed:

Tried several-times, the error is always on the same byte positions.
Proxmox 8,0.4 up to date.
OS installed on source drive seems to work ok.
If it matters the disk size was increased several-times one year ago (40 => 80 => 100 => 300G)

Any hints?
Thank you

This indicates that your drive might be failing.

To rescue the data, you should clone the failing disk to reliable storage. This can be done with a tool like ddrescue.
