When MC is copying/moving a number of files in one operation, whenever it encounters a corrupted file, it pauses the whole operation while asks whether to skip the file and deleted the partially-copied file. This method doesn't work very well, because it means that if there are corrupted files, you have to be at your computer to answer these two questions every time MC encounters a new corrupted file. It's very annoying if you start copying a large number of files (that will take many hours), and then go somewhere else and come back after several hours, to find that MC has paused itself 5 minutes after you left, because it encountered a corrupted file.

Whenever I'm using MC and it encounters a corrupted file, I always choose to skip the file, and to deleted the partially-copied file. And I imagine most other people do the same. So I think a useful addition, would be an option to make MC automatically skip any corrupted file, and delete the partially-copied file every time, and then at the end of the whole copy/move operation, if MC encountered corrupted files, it could present a list of all the files that it skipped.
