I would love to find a utility for finding duplicate folders ie. folder with identical content), across multiple drives and nested at any level.
Having evaluated/used almost every File Duplicate tool app out there (my fav is DoubleKillerPro for simpilicity/power/speed)
but like all the others it cannot handle this task.
Yes there are lot of ways such as using a tree/folder size tool like TreeSize (http://www.jam-software.com/freeware/index.shtml) or an explorer extensions like FolderSize ((http://foldersize.sourceforge.net/) and looking for folders of the same size - but this only work if folder are at the
same level and is cumbersome and tedious and really is just not practical.
Another way is to automate ZIP/RAR of all folders being tested (using same compression settings) and THEN use a File Dupe tool ..but
again this is a slow and clumsy workaround, and finding all the folder and automating batch files to do the zipping is daunting.
What is needed is a FOLDER DUPLICATE FINDER.
Does anyone know of such a product (freeware or commercial)?
I have some details notes on features/design issues I can post if anyone is interested in taking this on?
