Want to have Explorer continue copying...

In Explorer, when I drag a folder for a copy, sometimes an error occurs and the entire operation is cancelled.  Is there any way to have Explorer do a multi-file copy operation and simply continue after an error?

You may have some corupted files since the way I suggested works just fine, Have you tried to run SFC?
go to Start, Run, type SFC (System File Checker) and hit OK, this will check your system for missing, or corupted files and prompt you to replace them, make sure you have your Win98 disk handy

To do a multi file just hold the shift key down as you click on each file you want to copy, then go to edit and select "copy" then on the folder you want to copy them to, click edit , then "paste" If you then want to remove the files from the original location just go back and highlight them and select delete
Unfortunely the error will still stop the process but you should be able to just hit the paste again

Open a DOS prompt and do a copy there. DOS will resume after a failed file copy.

If you install Internet Explorer 5 and you have the Active Desktop activated this is the way it works the copy.
