Compare folders (highlight "missing" files or subfolders?)

Post by *sidefx88 » 2019-01-01, 22:21 UTC

Hi, maybe this is a very silly question, but I couldn't find a way TC solve this for me.

I have this two different folders. The left one contains 77 subdirs, and the right one contains 75 folders. That's almost the same, but I need TC to find the two folders that are in one panel but not in the other. I've tried Shift+F2 and Compare on the Sync dirs tool but it didn't find the two folders that I need highlighted or something like that...

Is there a way to compare two folders and highlight the files or subfolders that are "missing" on the other panel?

Thanks!

In the CommandBrowser -> cm_CommandBrowser there are three entries for Filter: cm_comp

Code: Select all

cm_CompareDirs	        	533	Compare dirs
cm_CompareDirsWithSubdirs	536	Also mark subdirs not present in other dir
cm_CompareFilesByContent	2022	File comparison
