I have a semi-died hard disk with a lot of data on it.
System can see it if I enable the safe configuration in BIOS (contradictory to optimized configuration).
When I try to copy multiple files from there to another disk copying freezes, I suppose, on files where the physical damage of the disk shows itself so the file can't be read.
But some files are copied and are good.
So I want to save the good files but copying freezes.
Yes if I copy them one by one I'll do the job. But there is a bunch of files.
I tried with Konqueror, Dolphin and Krusader.
Didn't find there an option to skip the copying of files that can't be copied.
Tried the cp
command and it freezes too after 10-20 files.
Read the man page but didn't find the option that I need either.
Does anyone of you knows of a program or command suitable for this task?
Thanks in addvance
