  • 2 to 1 folder comparisons

    I have several larger drives backed up to 2 or more smaller drives all on USB hubs, all connected at the same time.
    Examples1 Example2
    F:\FA F:\FA
    \FA\Sub1 F:\FB
    \FA\Sub2 F:\FC
    \FA\Sub3 F:\FD
    \FA\Sub4 F:\FE
    backed up to:
    M:\FA M:\FA
    \FA\Sub1 M:\FB
    \FA\Sub2 M:\FC
    N:\FA N:\FD
    \FA\Sub3 M:\FE

    Question: Is there a way to concatenate drives on one side of folder compare F: <--> M: + N:

    Suggestion: If method does not exist, please create!
    I think only ambiguity which would require dialogue is if folder does not exist to query in which drive or folder new folder should be created.

    We do not support loading multiple drives to a single side. If the paths are constant, you could use a combination of file name filters to create 2 separate sessions. For example:
    F:\FA to M:\FA
    with a file name filter of

    F:\FA to N:\FA
    with a file name filter of

    The first filter would include all subfolders that begin with A through M, and the second filter is all items not A through M (and not the base level). This combination would cut it roughly in half, but you can tweak the filter's range to better suit your data.

    It's not a simple enhancement to add multiple drive management to a single side for syncing, but it is something on our Customer Wishlist. I'll add your notes to our entry on the subject.
