Windows 7: Software to easily transfer a large amount of files?

Software to easily transfer a large amount of files?

Hi guys.
Some of you know that my 500GB hard drive is currently in a not-so-good shape. I bought two 1TB hard drives. One is fully formated and ready for use while the second is formatting since this morning (since 7:30am, it's now 12:18pm).

So, I want to know if there's a software that will allow me to quickly copy/move my file while being sure to avoid file corruption?

Or, at least, can you give me advice on how to transfer all my data?

Thanks for the help!

That's not exactly what I want...

What is concerned ISN'T the system disk. It's a separate storage hard drive.

you can try this: Copy your files faster with TeraCopy I haven't used it myself, but alot of people swear by it. (this is a good thing... swearing AT it isn't)

Thanks for the heads up. I will look into it.

EDIT

I'm still open for other suggestions. Second hard drive is only 60% formatted as right now.
