    I have SuperDuper! and i tried to backup non-bootable external hard drive to another external hard drive.

    SuperDuper! gives errors that it cannot copy some damaged files and stops backup.

    I try to find easy to use GUI app which continues to backup when it encounters error and after backup shows what files it did not copy at all.

    Here is one example of why CarbonCopyCloner is superior to SuperDuper as a cloning tool.

    SuperDuper will behave as you have found out -- if it encounters bad files during the clone, it will quit.

    CCC, on the other hand, works differently.
    If CCC encounters bad files, it will skip over them and KEEP COPYING the rest of the drive.
    Then, CCC will present you with a list of what was skipped.

    You can find CCC here:
    It's FREE to download, and FREE to use for the first 30 days.

    I think it will do what you need.
