I'm trying to clone a drive that I know has some low level errors.

I'm attempting to clone the drive so that I can reformat it.

When Super Duper fails to copy a single file, it throws an error, then stops.

I would prefer the clone to continue, but to log the error/failure to copy, instead of my having to deal with the delinquent files one at a time, and then rerunning the clone.

That way, if the errors are only on files I don't care about, I'm good to go, and I know what didn't get copied over...

I know that CCC has an option to "ignore" files that throw errors during the clone, but one has to click on the "ignore" button at the time that the error shows up, and the clone pauses until user input occurs...

We don't have a way of doing that, dmac. My post about I/O Errors at the Shirt Pocket Watch blog (http://www.shirt-pocket.com/blog) goes into detail about why we do what we do...
