Is there any error tolerant copy utility that would log copying errors and continue the process instead of shutting down the entire copying process like windows does? Also copy queueing would be nice too.

I often find myself copying GB's of data from a dying drive to a fresh one and it is a real pain when windows stops the copy half way through a 4-5 GB chunk of data and throws an error. I know there are errors on the drive I just want my data!!!

Any help would be great thanks,

Use XCOPY

Open a command prompt and use this:

XCOPY [source] [destination]

with these switches:

/S - copy sub dirs
/E - even if the subs are empty
/Y - answer yes to prompts
/C - continue if errors occur
/F - display full path and filename


You can pipe this to a text file with "> xxx.txt" (remove quotes)


so ... we get:

xcopy C:\*.* L:\*.* /s/e/y/c/f > L:\copy.txt
