    hey guys i need help in copying files from a cd thats partially corrupt

    the cd has only 3 curropt files on it and i got to know this using a util called CDCheck
    the 3 files are not in the same dir so its diff to unselect them whilst copying the entire disk

    could you please tell me a way to skip these files while the progress bar kinda gets stuck when it reaches it and then aborts totally instead of continuing


    thanks

    try copying everything except the directory which the corrupt files are in then go into that directory and copy the other files in that directory (if there is any)

    Also can try to make an ISO or other image of the cd on you HD then extract the files form the image

    excluding the files that are curropt arent a option really cos there are many subfolders and many more and more of them...its vs.net disk 1 you know and ms has a whole lot of folders so its confusing that way

    i can make an image of the disk in nero but it will only burn onto another disk with the same curropt files.is there a way to make an image then break it up onto the hdd

    yeah, thats what it meant. hope it helps, there is also a program called isobuster which does a similar thing

    i tried both undisker and iso buster

    undisker sucks and isobuster hangs up somewhere in between and i have to end the task

    isnt there a way in windows itself where i can use a hot key while pasting the files directly from the cd to the hdd

    please tell me there is

    you could use xcopy in a command window to copy the disc and specify the files on the exclude list

    run cmd then type xcopy/? to get the full list of options and how to use it

    works something like

    xcopy <source drive>\*.* <destination> /E /EXCLUDE:exclude.txt

    with exclude.txt being a plain file with the names of the files you don't want to copy each on a new line
