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
dayle


see the screenshot attached

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

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
