  • Can I compare folder names only?

    My brother and I synch our digital movie collections frequently and I would like to compare folder names only, not contents. Is this possible? Sometimes we have movie files stored in different formats than each other and after a synch many movies are duplicated in folders with different formats.

    You can set to the Folder Compare's View menu -> Always Show Folders. Then set the file name filter from *.* to -*.*. This would remove all files from the view, leaving the folder structure.

    If this is a common workflow, you can use the Options dialog -> Toolbars/Etc section, select Folder Compare view, and then search for the Show None button and add it to the toolbar. This button could be used instead of editing the file name filter to -*.*
