Copy files from Sharepoint to local folder

I have a requirement to copy files out of a sharepoint database to a local folder.
I have gone through the process of creating a new network place and pointed to my database.  I can see all of the files here (over 2500 and 2Gb+) but when I copy the folder they are in and paste to my local drive, it starts OK, but only copies a few of the files and then stops.  Strangley enough if I paste to a different location on the same disk it will still only copy the same number, each time the same 52 files.  
Even if I go and manually select a number of files, it will still only copy some of them.
When it stops copying, there is no error message.  It's kinda like it has only selected 53 files, even though I select the folder which has over 2500 files in it.

I've disabled my AV software but still get the same problem.

Any ideas?

Make sure you give atleast some access rights to your machine login (say, add machine login id in members group)
Go to Site collection > Library.


Click ActionS > Open with Windows Explorer.
A new window will open, Copy the data
