    I have a hard drive which is on its last leg, a hard drive with tens of thousands of photos.

    I'm busy transferring them to another drive... a process which under normal circumstances would take around six hours.

    For now, much of it is accessible. However, there is the occasional file which is too corrupt to transfer.

    At this point, the Finder is not meeting my needs. The transfer stalls when it discovers a corrupt file and quits a short while later. I don't have time to be at my Mac all day to restart the transfer each time.

    Is there an app which can help me out?

    Minicopier sounded promising... but it doesn't work. It would have transferred all the files it could and kept a record of those it couldn't.

    App suggestions, anyone?

    Many thanks!

    Check to see if Carbon Copy Cloner will skip and report on the corrupt files. Copying with the Finder in these cases is a nightmare!

    CCC will be easy if it works. If not, a Terminal method can be used.
