I have a partially corrupted HD that can not be repaired by Disk Utility, but which can be mounted read-only making the data on it accessible.
I am trying to copy all the recoverable contents onto a spare HD, but every method I try fails when an error is encountered - leaving the remaining files un-copied.
- Finder - Fails
- SuperDuper - Fails
- Ditto (terminal command) - Fails
I was hoping that Ditto would do the trick, the Ditto man page says:
ditto returns 0 if everything is copied, otherwise non-zero. ditto almost never gives up, preferring to report errors along the way. Diagnostic messages will be printed to standard error.
I have submitted a bug to Apple re ditto failing to perform as advertised.
Any other ideas?
