Copy Files and Ignore Cyclic Redundancy Check Errors on Windows
Today I had the unfortunate pleasure of copying some data on a Windows machine. Windows File Explorer (or File Manager or Explorer or whatever they call it these days) has a hissy fit if any of the files cannot be read or has a CRC Cyclic Redundancy Check Error. It then helpfully bails out on the entire process.
Fortunately I discovered you can still use the xcopy command line utility with the /c switch to ignore errors in Windows. I solved my problem with the follow command.
xcopy /c /s d:\*.* e:\incoming
The /s is for recursion, and don't forget it's *.* in Windows, not just *Copy Files and Ignore Cyclic Redundancy Check Errors on Windows
I guess I'd call myself a problem solver. Either that, or I'm some sort of organic machine designed to convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. You could go either way on that. I'm into languages and stuff. I wrote a book. It's okay, I guess. What else? I like reading, swimming, eating, and playing music. Satisfied? Sheesh.
