File name: [app script] Unstoppable Copier


Description:

Recovers files from disks with physical damage. Allows you to copy files from disks with problems such as bad sectors, scratches or that just give errors when reading data. The program will attempt to recover every readable piece of a file and put the pieces together. Using this method most types of files can be made useable even if some parts were not recoverable in the end.



You can visit Roadkil's site here: http://www.roadkil.net/unstopcp.html


This script works under any API compatible project, you can place it on a folder you wish.

Have fun!

I like it because it will try and try until you say that it's ok to ignore and continue copying..

While copying with explorer it would just fail, guess there are more tools out there for this task - but this one works good enough. :1st:

Had made one for VistaPE a little while ago :) I like it for the same exact reasons and its now up to v3.12 If you are just doing a simple folder/file copy then this is the tool to use.

I may be just being paranoid, but, I always place a "\" in front of my source and target paths for Unstoppable Copier.

Like this:
SOURCE: C:\
TARGET: D:\RECOVERED\

Sometimes if I do not do that I get duplicate folders like
D:\RECOVERED\RECOVERED

Doesn't usually make a difference but why tempt fate?

Just for the record, this app is often handy:
http://www.ruahine.com/
http://www.ruahine.c...py-utility.html

Ycopy will copy the files from one drive to another just like a regular copy. The difference being that when it encounters a file that it can't copy (for whatever reason) it doesn't just give up. Instead it makes a note of the file(s) that couldn't be copied and moves on to the next one. When the copy process completes you are left with a printable report that you can then give to the client detailing the files which were unable to be copied. Making the job not only easier and much more predictable for you (you set it going and leave it to get on with the job, no more wasted time poring over directories and files) but more professional from the customers perspective (not only did you copy all their precious data that you could but you've given them a detailed list of files that were unable to be saved due to problems with the original disks file system.)


Then you can use a recovery program only on the files in the list.....:yahoo:
