  • How to flatten folders tree ?

    How can I find duplicates in two folders which have different subfolders structure ? Is there an option to flatten/ignore folders and compare just files, regardless what folder they belong to ?

    BC doesn't support duplicate searching in the current version.

    A flat view mode and duplicate searching are both on our wish list.

        When will the find duplicates be available?

          Finding duplicates is a high priority feature, but I really can't say when it will be available at this point.

          In the meantime, there are quite a few dedicated duplicate searching tools available. Tucows and Download.com should have quite a few listed.

          As far as a specific utility, I've used Spaceman99 a bit in the past and it seemed to do the job pretty well.

            Has the Flat mode feature been implemented? If not, does anyone know of a directory compare program with this feature?

            I am trying to find unique files in two very large directories where most files are identical.

              Flatten folders hasn't been implemented yet.

              You might have luck with one of the duplicate file finding utilities.

              You can find a list of them at Download.com.

                Did this make it to a V3 wish-list?

                  Flatten folders will be in Beyond Compare 3.0. Duplicate file searching is still on our wish list, but it won't make it into the BC 3.0 release.
