Strange problems for the experts to solve Smilie

I was copying a big dir structure from one directory to another directory using the cp -r command ..

Suddenly the machine started giving an error : cannot cp <dash> <dash> directory : IO Error

I remove the created directories . do it again .. same problem

Also it happens that if i create a directory using mkdir same (IO Error)

rebooted the machine : Same error

Though after sometime it just mysteriously corrected itself so now i can create directories

Not an urgent thing, just curious to know wat happened ...

I had like problem. In my case it was controller. It was hot weather and from time to time copy of large info interrupted with error.
One more idea is corrupted blocks on your hdd . Check it.

And first of all in a situations like this check logs.
