I've got two 1.5TB drives in a RAID0 array, one of which is starting to make the signature failure noises. The data on these disks isn't very important but I would like to salvage as much of it as I can.

However, simply copying the files over will get Windows stuck on the files that are in unreadable locations. Since I don't care that much I wouldn't mind skipping these files after a set timeout, how would you go about setting up a copy like this?


You could use something like TeraCopy which can happily skip unreadable files.

Error recovery. In case of copy error, TeraCopy will try several times and in the worse case just skip the file, not terminating the entire transfer.
