Error Message - Disk I/O.

[ Edited ]

Disk I/O. Quit and Restart Skype. If you keep seeing this error. Please contact Skype Support

 

On thursday last I went to use Skype, a message had arrived in me absence to suggest updating Skype to the latest version. I did this and now I have no access to loggin so was wondering if you get a quick simple solution for this error. After installin the upgrade, I get the above error after loggin in.

 

 

I use an Apple Mac Book Pro, version 10.6.8 of Mac OS X, hope this helps

 

look forward to your help if poss

Try to reset all Skype settings.

 

Quit Skype or use Windows Task Manager to kill any Skype.exe process. Go to Windows Start and in the Search/Run box type %appdata%, press Enter or click the OK button. The Windows File Explorer will pop up. There locate a folder named “Skype”. Rename this folder to something different, e.g. Skype_old. Restart Skype.

 

N.B. If needed, you will still be able to re-establish your call and chat history. All data is still saved in the Skype_old folder.

I am having the same problem..

Getting this same error after I log in:

"Disk I/O error. Quit and restart Skype.  If you keep seeing this error, please contact Skype support."

Tried quiting and restarting and restarting laptop to no avail....
