Software to detect differences in directories

Postby osity » 04.02.20, 00:06

Does anyone know if there is any software that you know of that will compare files in one directory to another? (i.e to check for any missing files after a copy from one place to another)

Another one you might want to look at is WinMerge.

A common problem I face is when copying the files to a destination drive it skips a lot files due to Filename length limitations and I’m forced to skip them.

I can also recommend FastCopy. It handles files with long file names.
