[Solved - kinda] Can't log in : BTRFS: error in btrfs_run_delayed_refs:2124: errno:-5 IO failure

Hi there, so huge issue. I can't log in.

I was playing GTA v for a few hours, and after a certain mission the game indicates me that I can't save. I could still play and alln but couldn't save. Then I decided to open firefox, it wouldn't launch. And I got other error, like something KDE couldn't write in configuration file.
I thought, whatever it will be fixed by rebooting or loading another snapshot! BUT NO!!
Now I'm getting this error

BTRFS: error (device sdb2) in btrfs_run_delayed_refs:2124: errno:-5 IO failure

Really wondering what I should be doing
I can't share my system logs since now I'm stuck on the black screen console....

Please help, thanks

Hi,
errno:-5 IO failure sounds to me like an hardware problem of your drive, I really hope I'm wrong here.
We'll need someone more experienced than me to help on this, but for the moment I suggest you try and chroot your system from a live USB: if you can get in, that would be at least a good signal

So I can use garuda-chroot and I can access all my files...
I guess the solution is to recover data and reinstall garuda. But maybe my 2012 ssd is soon dead. What steps should I take to troubleshoot the issue. I don't think it is a boot issue, since grub loads and I can access snapshot but not boot on them

Start at base - the mighty Arch wiki BTRFS section?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Btrfs

There's some good info here, too.

Hope this helps. :slightly_smiling_face:

If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post. Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.

Images can be read worse, are not searchable and copyable for further search.
Should the helpers have to guess everything or laboriously type it in themselves?

IO error - whatever the SMART status it is likely to be a hardware failure?

Hi.
If you managed to backup your data and even considered reinstalling, if I were you I'd try the btrfs check [options] that the man calls dangerous :slight_smile: like --repair or --init-csum-tree
In the worst case... reinstall...

Boot a Garuda ISO. Use the partition application (Partition Manager or GParted) to see how much disk space is left on the drive you have Garuda installed.

The supposed error messages make me question if Timeshift snapshots are consuming an extraordinary amount of space?

You can send terminal command output through netcat to termbin.

sudo btrfs check /dev/sdb2  | nc termbin.com 9999

But check disk available space as suggested first.

I had 60gb left....

Thanks all, I decided to backup everything and reinstall, and I ordered a new ssd.
