I want to backup my pictures from my Android 4.4 phone to my Windows PC but I'm struggling to copy them the normal windows copy way. It seems that at some point many of the images have somehow corrupted and since I have hundreds of pictures on my phone, finding the images one by one in File Manager (CyanogenMod) is a real hassle.
The normal windows copy mode fails when I try to copy the files off the device through USB which actually crashes the entire Windows Explorer process and I have to restart it from task manager.
Then I thought trying to copy in segments by going in to the Camera folder and copying piece by piece. But windows fails to fully read the directory (probably due to corrupt files) and again crashes Windows Explorer.
I also tried creating a zip file from the folder on the device but it seems to also fail making it.
How could I copy the folder to my windows pc even if it has some files corrupt/broken?View original question
