Copying from damaged disk

I have a damaged disk I can still access and I am trying to copy files off of it before it goes belly up. I am unable to use Retrospect with it. I am unable to manually copy to an external drive. But I can copy to my C drive.

The problem is: as it copies from a folder, if it comes upon a file that is from the damaged sector, the copy exits. Does anyone know a utility to do a file copy that just skips to the next file if one file is damaged?

Also, do you know of any software that is particularly good for rescuing files from a damaged disk. (This is my data disk, not my system disk.)

xxcopy from www.xxcopy.com

e.g.
xxcopy d:\ c:\dBackup  /clone

will copy the d drive to a folder called "dBackup" on the c drive

For file recovery, PC Inspector File Recovery is good if the disk is not damaged. But Spinrite (which I've never tried) is rated excellent otherwise.
