I normally leave those files where they are and explain to the customer how to find them. I also quote the number of files & folders recovered and their total size, and add "... of which xxx files (yyyGB) were corrupted/unreadable." If I follow best practice and do a drive image (rather than selective file recovery) and recover the files from the image, there is no way to know which of the recovered files are corrupted without opening/playing/running them.
That was got Corrupted File Finder. It can scan the recovered files and flag/separate those that are corrupted, based on them containing a sector full of the fill character. There may still be corrupted files that don't meet that definition and some files that do but are not corrupted. It's not infallible but is an improvement.
You could always do the drive image first and then run a selective file recovery task against the patient. That would get you a more accurate list of "bad" files but still allow further recovery from the image, e.g., of lost or deleted files.

It also creates a text report of the bad files and their paths. This basically gives the customer 2 recoveries, good files with original folder structure, and bad files with original folder structure in the folder "!Problem". The problem files have the original file type so the customer can easily open them to see if they are worth keeping. This works great with Snap2HTML because you can point out to the customer they are paying for the recovery that's not in the !Problem folder and receiving the data in the !Problem folder as a bonus, if they choose to go through it.
