Search duplicated PDF to TIF on harddisk?

Post by *Peter »

We have some TIF files, created as export from PDF. I have to search for these "derivates" on the entire harddisk in that way

- search the defined location
- for every file with extension TIF or TIFF
- if a file is found, check if there is a PDF with same name in same folder (c:\data\test.tif -->> c:\data\test.pdf)
(spezial: check if PDF or TIF is older)
- if PDF is found, return the TIF to result window or to result file

My idea is semi-manual:
- search for TIF
- write result to file
- edit file - replace TIF with PDF
- search for new filelist

Any better ideas?

Press Num+
Enter *.tif*>*.pdf and click OK

Now all tif and tiff files that have a matching pdf file are marked, but the pdf files are also marked

Press Num-
Enter *.pdf

Now only the tif and tiff files that have a matching pdf file should be selected

Ohter way ;-)

Code: Select all

Enter *.pdf>*.tif and click OK
Great stuff, thanks.

But - my fault - I meant I have to search on the entire disk, not in one folder (I just modifid my posting above)

Branch view with thousands of files can be a little bit bulky ...

I do it all the time but i always apply filter first to only select one or two file type... in your case this is *.tif *.pdf
For your issue you could also give a look to additional content plugins like:
to build you own stuff

to find if any tiff "Sibling" file is saved side to the pdf file ( but not getting date)
- https://totalcmd.net/plugring/file.html
