Problem copying files in XP

    When I try to copy a lot of files between folders in XP, if it can't copy
    one it tells me, but then aborts the operation.
    This is most unsatisfactory.
    How can I tell it to just ignore that particular file, then carry on copying
    the rest?
    Is there perhaps a third party application that I should use instead?
    Grrrr
    TIA

    xcopy?

    xcopy /c - copies files and ignores errors. xcopy /? for full command
    list.
