I am using the command:
robocopy G: J: /MIR /COPYALL /ZB
First it tried copying the file a few times (I didn't count, it's not in my window any more) and got an access denied error, error 5. Then it tried again and locked up. I tried copying that specific file (14 MB) and Windows says "can't read from source file or disk".
I started robocopy again. Hopefully it will ignore it after a fail attempt or two, but what options can I use to say if it doesn't work continue to the next file? It looked like that is what it was doing, but for this last one it repeated more than four times and locked up finally.
I'm open to other copy solutions. I do prefer built in solutions. I am using Windows 7.
Also how might I do this without the
/MIR option? Is
/S /E good enough? flag reference here
I see I can control retries with /R:<Amount>, but I am still open to alternative solutions.
It seems to take a few minutes before it decides the try failed. Can I shorten it? The file has been stuck at 20.8% for quiet a while now.
I tried a data recovery app. It tried to recover the data and DID NOT mark it as invalid or corrupted. Although I did get a message saying sector XYZ had an I/O error, continue? but that didn't give me the name of the corrupted file. I don't want this. The best solution for me is getting all good files + names of invalid files.
