Event ID 26 is logged in the system log for a variery of reasons. In this case, it's the dreaded delayed write failure.

Delayed write failures will be seen when access to a disk is lost, but the system is still attempting to write to it, or sometimes when system resources run too low to complete the I/O action. When this happens, you'll probably also be seeing a lot of other issues, such as event ID 333 from Application Popup and applications failing to launch or allocate memory.

This event may also be accompanied by event ID 50 from NTFS.

It is also possible to see a delayed write failure to a UNC path. In this case, you may see event ID 50 from MRxSmb. Check the data section of the MRxSmb event for a better idea of what's going wrong.
