I have nearly identical directory trees on an external drive and my internal drive. To try to find out the differences, I add all the files from the external drive to Copywhiz , then I did a Paste Preview. I made sure I selected the option to paste only new or modified files. But when I did a preview, CopyWhiz identified that ALL (100%) of the source files will be pasted, and "0" files to be filtered.
I may not be understanding this right, but I expected only a few dozen files "to be pasted", with the bulk of the files "to be filtered" because they are identical on both drives. I selected these options in the CopyWhiz dialog:
- Paste > Filter tab > Advanced Settings > Automatically identify & paste only new or modified files
- Paste > General tab > Skip if both files are identical and Skip if destination file is newer
What am I doing wrong?
