MRT Data Explorer is able to automatically save bad files into specific folder called "!Bad Files" if you untick this option

This option is useful so that we can send the list of bad files to customer, unfortunately MRT handles that stupidly because it doesn't organize those files in folders.
We get all those bad files in one single folder like does windows recycle bin, therefore it is not at all useful for the purpose of generating the list for the customer.
MRT handles this issue by adding a number for assigning different names to those files, VERY STUPID!!

How customer could understand which of his files are really bad?
Many files do have same name (but are not same files), without original folder root it's near to impossible for customer to understand which of his files got damaged.

When conversing with MRT support about this and the fact that they do a similar thing to deal with files that get cut off due to the long file path, they don't seem to understand why anyone would need or want the full path of those files. It is as though the developers don't do data recovery.
