When an I/O failure occurs, that I/O will have an error icon in the I/O Capture List. Selecting the Error Analysis tab will provide you detailed error analysis for that I/O.

Summary Error Analysis

This section shows you a quick analysis as to why the I/O failed. At the top of the analysis window, a toolbar is available with various options.

Selecting this option will copy the contents of the window to the clipboard.
If the I/O failure is a storage device check condition, you can click on this button to view the Request Sense Data. Otherwise, this button is disabled.

In addition to using the toolbar option, you can also select a range of text within the window by left clicking your mouse and dragging over the text you want to select. You can then right click on the selection and choose the Copy option to have only the selected text copied to the clipboard.
