Powerful file copy tool?

So Finder keeps crashing on my and I believe it may be my extra internal hdd in my Macbook Pro. It's passing S.M.A.R.T but I can't see why after about 30 seconds of my Macbook being on Finder just freezes up.

So I'm trying to backup my stuff from it across the network and some files are not being read which of course means that it then stops the copy. With many many files (music samples) this is proving to be annoying.

I need a free tool which will give me options to skip read fail files. Anyone know of any program that will do this?

Try Carbon Copy Cloner, if that doesn't work then you could do it from command line:

Code:
cd /Volumes/discname
for file in *
do
cp $file /path/to/new/folder/
done

This is failing right? It's passing SMART but read errors are a sign it's on it's way out right? Need to know if Seagate will replace this under warranty or if they think it's fine.
