Just had a main disk go bad. I restored the sites to a new server by slapping the backup drive into the new machine, but apparently, cPanel backup has been having some problems on this server and the most recent useable backups are a few days old. I suspect that these errors were caused by subtle degradation of the disk over a period of a couple of days culminating in a complete failure earlier today, but here's the last backup log. They are pretty much identical for several days prior. Anyone see something suspicious? (I replaced sensitive info with "redacted")

Seeing some Input/output errors in your backup log indicating a bad drive. You might need to fsck your drive.
