Backup problems dues to bad CRC.. Please Help RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am helping a friend out with his computer. His HD is 95% full and failing. He desperately needs everything in his "My Documents" folder backed up. I have his HD attached to another computer and am attempting to copy the 46GB "My Documents" folder over to another HD. The problem is, is that there are files scattered throughout the folder that are corrupt due to the HD failure. Everytime the copy process hits one of those files, it stops and tells me that it cannot copy this file.


    I am looking for some software that will scan this folder and remove the corrupt files before attempting another backup.... or any other method of performing this. Otherwise this could be a 2-3 day process.


    Can anyone offer some help or advice?


    Thank you in advance...
