I am after a little program that will look at the contents of two folders and list each file in columns and then tell me which files are the same.For example:Folder 1: Files 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5Folder 2: Files 1, 3, 5, 6, and 7Files that are the same: 1, 3 and 5.I have only managed to find programs that compare file versions, DLL'S etc. This is not what i am after. There just word documents, pictures...Does anyone know of a program that will do this?As far as i know you cannot do this from Windows XP, if you can how?
this is built into xp
from click here has a feature to find duplicate files.... I'm writing this at work so I can't check exactly how it works. I usually just use it as a regisry cleaner, but from memory you can set which folders you want it to look in.If I'm right you'd have to set it to look in the folder that is higher than both the folders you want to check, which may of course reveal other duplicates as well.I hope this helps, apologies if it turns out to be a wild goose chase!Regards,Simsy
jvpowertools messed up my computer a litte when i installed it so i had to get rid of it.Have never used briefcase not even in 98.I'll have a go now :-)
click here this can show lists in two folders side-by-side and has a synchronise feature.
I use PowerDesk (free programme on many Magazine cover disks) this can compare folders, subfolders and even complete HDDs.
Thanks Pesala and pj123 i'm currently using the Briefcase, it's going ok so far...I've had a look at the sites for 2xExplorer and PowerDesk and they look good but briefcase is going good at the moment so i'll stick with that.
