Solved: Ignore Dupes Within a Set

Post by johnywhy » 24 Feb 2018, 02:38

Scenario:

I have 3 sets of backups.

Set 1: G:\Stuff\Files\many folders\many files
Set 2: G:\Files\many folders\many files
Set 3: G:\many folders\many files

If i add them as 3 sets, i want to ONLY find dupes between the sets.

But AllDup finds dupes within a set. Example:

G:\Files\XYZ\banana
G:\Files\ABC\banana

Even those two are in the same set (Set 2), they are listed as dupes. I want to ignore dupes like this, in the same set, and only show dupes between different sets. Example:

G:\Stuff\Files\XYZ\banana
G:\Files\XYZ\banana

Add the 3 folders as source folders and activate the source folder option "Compare only files between different source folders".
