Frequent Error (Error: EIO: i/o error, read)


Hi. Our project has done this once or twice about a month ago, but recently this has been occurring almost everyday.

The only way of dealing with this is to remove the node_modules folder and reinstall npm which is obviously something we don’t want to be doing daily.

Can someone please take a look into this for us? Project name is Astonishing Hardhat.



enable pnpm in your project!!


It looks like your project is private. What’s the exact error message you’re seeing?
