I have a PC with a hdd in it. All it has is mkv I have ripped from my own DVD and bluray. I have been suspecting that this drive is on its way out as it is becoming noisy and the sound pulsates. So I bought myself a NAS drive and attempted to copy off the files before it failed irrevocably.
It appears that some files are broken in some way and I don't know how many. The copy would be going fine and then it would hit a file and copying would cease (the network performance tab in task manager would show 0%) for about 5 minutes upon which time it would ask if I would like to retry or skip. Retry causes it to pause for another 5 minutes while skipping causes it to wait 5 minutes before going to the next file.
I would like to be able to automatically scan the the files looking for these errors and mark the files that are broken so I can rerip and then delete them.
I have tried windows chkdsk and scan disk but the former found zero errors and the latter only does system files?
I have tried playing these files and they are unplayable. I would rather not spend several hours possibly watching Windows decide that the file is broken and uncopyable and manually telling it to skip.
A Google search reveals a lot of Microsoft pages on system file repair and a lot of questions with little in the way of answers beyond tools that would try to open them.
Does anyone know of any tools to do this? A Linux live disk would also suffice if it does what I need it to and comes with detailed instructions.
UPDATE: I started looking for raw copiers but I am suspecting that they will copy everything including errors. Also they overwrite everything on the disk so I will be swapping out a drive for a spare 2gb I had left over from my NAS.
No tools anyone can recommend?
