  • Folder Copy in Show Mismatches view

    I frequently do folder comparisons with only mismatches visible. When I collapse the folders, highlight them, right-click and and select Copy, it appears that ALL files are being copied (including matches) -- not just the files that don't match. To only copy the mismatched files, I have to leave the folder expanded, select the individual files explicitly and select Copy.

    Would it be possible to update BC so that by default folder actions only affect mismatched files if in Show Mismatches view?

    fyi, I use Binary Comparison.

    BC versions: 2.4.3 (just started trying 2.5 beta but it appears to be the same)
    O/S: Win2k, XP Pro

    Hi Gary,

    Thanks for the suggestion. We plan to change this behavior in Beyond Compare 3, due out towards the end of this year.

    In the current version, you can use the Actions|Synchronize Folders|* commands to copy just newer and orphan files without expanding folders.
