Ranked Selection / RegEx option?

Post by dglp » 04 Mar 2019, 18:57

Hi,
I've been trying AllDup to deal with an assortment of files across eight network drives. I am searching on file name and content on a selection of three drives at a time. Let's call the drives A, B and C. I want drive C to be the destination. It already has many files. So I search for duplicates on A and B. It turns out that AllDup finds some files that are common to A & B but not C, along with the other duplicates.

So I would like to limit the search to files that are only duplicates of files already on C. How do I do that? Is there a RegEx function? Must I do one search on A & C then another search on B & C?

It would be really useful to search all of my drives in one operation, then select one copy based on a hierarchy of conditions, and have that copy moved to a particular destination.

Thanks for a the fast reply.

In that case, does AllDup have an option to import a list of files to work on?
Once I have done comparisons between drive pairs, I could export those results to text files, and do some regex work on them. IF I could import the resulting list, it would simplify the process of moving or deleting files.

So does AllDup have the ability to import file lists?
