Can Windows Explorer be made to ignore errors and continue during a file copy?
Posted on 2009-05-05
I have a Motorola Q cell phone connected to my Windows XP box via USB cable. Microsoft ActiveSync is installed to keep the phone in sync. However, I want to copy the raw files on the phone's file system onto my computer as well. Only Explorer can see the file system on the phone through ActiveSync's interface. Therefore, I cannot use XCOPY to get around this issue because there is no drive letter associated with the mobile device.
Does anyone know of a registry patch or something through which Explorer can be instructed to keep copying files even when an error is encountered? Thanks for any help!
<RANT> IMHO, this is one of the stupidest "non-features" that has perpetuated through every version of Windows released. Why is that not an option that can be set in Explorer? Why must Explorer insist on abandoning a file copy because of ONE error? </RANT>
