Working around a bad disk?

I have been running S.M.A.R.T. Reporter and it reports that my disk is going bad In creating a new complete backup clone, not surprisingly SD! chokes on a particular file. I dragged that file to the trash, but, equally not surprisingly, OS X chokes on emptying the file ("the file cannot be read....").

So, my question is there any way to work around this so that I can create a backup clone before I bury the hard drive in the back yard and get a new one?

You should be able to modify the Backup - all files copy script to ignore the bad file, if you can't get the trash to empty. To do so:

- Choose File > New Copy Script
- Enter a description in the first tab
- Include "Backup - all files" in the 2nd
- In the 3rd, navigate to the "bad file" add add it to the list. Make sure the command is "ignore"
- Save with an appropriate name, and choose instead of "Backup - all files"

That should be all that's necessary.
