Compare two folders

Post by thestormman » 02 Apr 2019 02:43

Greetings!
Just stumbled on this website and looks interesting
Is there a way for the application (or a script) to allow me to compare files in two folders? I'd like the ability to compare two or more folders (source & Target) and then identify the files that are missing (or extra) in the target folder? and then allow me to select all that are extra (or missing) and copy them/remove them?

This feature alone would let me to buy this software
Thanks

This menu is not very user friendly, so what do you think about something like this :
XYplorer Compare.png
XYplorer Compare.png (75.98 KiB) Viewed 418 times
In this mockup, pane1 color cells (blue) are used on :
- the existing file (+) in this pane
- missing files (-) in the other pane
- different content files (≠) (but with a newest modification date in this pane).
The same rules are applied for the pane2 color (orange).

Folder are not compared. If you need her is the icon (done by myself) :
folder.png

If we wand more, we could synchronize files by clicking on icons.

Thanks !
