mulitple file copy from failing drive

Greetings -

I have inherited an old G4 system from my sister who recently passed away from cancer. She has several journals (years worth) on her old G4 sorted into folders on the system that I am trying to transfer onto another drive.

I know some of the items will not probably be recoverable without professional grade help, but want to know if there is a command line I can issue to attempt to copy the files in place to another drive without it stopping on each failure. When I try to do a batch in the GUI it forces me to have to do it one at a time because of the failures.

FSCK on the volumes fails and can not be repaired.

Any input appreciated.
