    Corrupted files on external HD
    Hi, I'm new to this forum and couldn't seem to find an answer to my request.

    I have a corrupted external HD. The majority of my files are ok, but a few dispersed files are corrupted. I would like to transfer my data to a new external HD but every time it targets a corrupted file, the transfer stops and I need to manually start it over. I have 250 GB of data in quite a few files, I'm looking for a software that will automatically locate and erase corrupted files so I can transfer all the data in a single request.

    I've tried the "clone disk" feature in Data Rescue 3 and it didn't really do anything. I may have done something wrong...

    Thank you for your advice!

    I don't know of any software that will do what you want, but it appears to me that you have a time-consuming manual task to do, and there's no simple way round it. I've been through a similar event, and it took me most of a working day to do the transfer of non-corrupted files.
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
