Returns the number of disk write errors encountered by SQL Server since SQL Server last started.
Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version).
Not all write errors encountered by SQL Server are accounted for by this function. Occasional non-fatal write errors are handled by the server itself and are not considered errors. To display a report containing several SQL Server statistics, including total number of errors, run sp_monitor.
