I am using Windows XP, and I need to copy the contents of an entire HD onto another backup HD, but sprinkled throughout there are files with "illegal" characters, (&*@^$!? etc.).
When I try to do a straight copy things go fine until it gets to a file with an illegal character, then it stops and I get the error message "CANNOT COPY FILE : CANNOT READ FROM SOURCE FILE OR DISK"
Is there some kind of open source backup program or copy utility that would solve the problem?
