So now on the new disk he has files with random blocks of zeroes and *no* error indication of which files are so trashed. This is asking for trouble. Silent erros are worse.
He ought to do a file level copy, not disk level copy on unix. That way he knows *which* files are trashed and can do
The problem is, FreeBSD panics when it encounters bad sectors in filesystem metadata. I had the same situation ~a month ago and gave up, restoring from old backups. It will also probably panic on corrupted or zeroed metadata, but at least it's on a readable disk...
