Rectifying “Input Output Error” in Microsoft Access

Registry settings for Microsoft Access enable you to change the title, icon, startup screen and help file of the database. Corruption in registry settings primarily occurs due to incompatible hardware or software, software bugs and more. In most cases of corruption in registry settings of MS Access database, you encounter an error message that makes the data stored in the database inaccessible. To restore your inaccessible data, you need to have an updated backup. But, if no backup is available or the backup fails to restore the required data, then you need to use advanced Access Recovery tools.

You might encounter any of the below error messages, when you attempt to mount your Access database:

“An unexpected error occurred - I/O Error 0”
“An unexpected error occurred - I/O Error 6”
found an error it cannot correct.”

The data stored in the MS Access database becomes inaccessible after any of the above error messages appear.


The above error messages mainly occur due to damage or corruption of MS Access settings stored in the registry.


To resolve all the above error messages, you need to modify the registry. To do so, you need to follow these steps:

Delete the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\X.0 Key
Reset the Open Dialog Box Settings
Delete the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\X.0 Key

However, a single incorrect change made in the registry can result as serious issues. In such situations, you need to reinstall the MS Office suite into your system. Data loss while reinstallation might occur under these two conditions:

Installing an incompatible version of MS Office
Interruption while importing an MS Access database

If your data is lost due to any of these reasons, then you need to recover your lost database by using powerful Access Database Repair applications. Such access database repair tools incorporate advanced scanning algorithms to comprehensively recover and restore all database components. With highly graphical and interactive user interface, these recovery tools work as self-explanatory tools without requiring sound or prior technical skills. These tools can generally recover and restore inaccessible Access (.accdb and .mdb) database files.

Access Recovery is the most trust worthy Access Recovery utility. This read-only recovery tool can restore and access repair database components such as query, form, report, macro and module. It supports Microsoft Access 2007, 2003, XP (2002) and 2000. It is compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2003, 2000 and NT.
