Hello All!

I'm trying to offload large music folders to an external hard drive, and I have problems with windows explorer (and even total commander) when it gets to certain files, where it basically require a control / alt / delete or hard reboot.


It's driving me a little crazy and making it very hard to get my data organized.


I'm looking for suggestions of apps or techniques that will allow me to transfer large groups of folders (say My Music with multiple subfolders) and not get bogged down by that random corrupt file.


Is there something better than total commander for this? Would Linux help?


I LOVE windows 7, but trying to transfer files is nuts!!    Is there any command line copy techniques that wouldn't freeze up on corrupt files?


I'm sure many of you can relate, so thanks for any suggestions  :D

There is no My Music folder in Win 7.


If there were, there would be  little point in transferring the My Music folder itself...but the contents can be easily moved to another drive/partition.


No special tools are needed...just go to Computer/Explorer view and move the files from one partition/drive to the external drive.
