hi, didn't find the really correct place for posting this question, hope this is an acceptable one.

As said in the title i'd like to know if a virus/malware or infected file can damage other files if it is copied it from a path to another. The question has born while making a backup of some files, 30-40GB, but between this there can be some malicious one, since they are a lot and they has not been checked by long time.

Copying a virus can make it execute his code or not ? I think no, but do you say ? thanks for reading ;)
