NTFS Corruption - But windows boots

We have some NTFS corruption caused by a bad hard drive.  It is on a Dell 1650 with 3 x 36gb drives in Raid 5 using Perc3, not Win2003's RAID.  Only one drive is bad.  We have delete non-critical data and have the machine to where only 18GB of data is needed.  It is all in one directory.  We booted into recover console and CHKDSK'd the drive, it is now all clean from a CHKDSK standpoint.  The machine will boot in to Win2003 and run for many hours without crashing...that is the good news.

We are attempting to extract the 18GB (probably +25,000 files) of needed data.  We don't care about the registry or any OS issues.  When doing an XCOPY of the data, it will hit a bad block of data and stop the copy. The Backup utilities seem to crash in the middle as well.  Does anyone know of a tool that will allow the data to be copied off and SKIP the problem files?
