  • Comparing for changes in a folder

    What's the best way to set up BC3 to compare for changes in a folder from one time point to the next, rather then differences between folders? Currently I keep a snapshot on the left side, and the current folder in the right side, but when I want a refresh, I have to snapshot right and reload into left. I'm hoping there's a quicker way e.g. one key press! Thanks.

    Hello chrisjj,

    Taking a new snapshot and then dragging it into the left pane would be the quickest way to do this workflow.

      Thanks, but thankfully drag snapshot into the left side is unnecessary. Having saved it under the same name, F5 is sufficient to reload.

        Well, I find this is true if the snapshot is on the left, but not when it is on the right!

        Workaround: as Aaron suggested, drag the snapshot .bcss file from Explorer to right.

        SS, can you reproduce this?

          Hello chrisjj,

          I just tested this quick, but it did not reproduce for me.

          I did, however, miss renaming the snapshot the first time (so it was accidentally a new name) and the refresh didn't pick it up. Is it possible you accidentally had the same thing happen to you?

            Thanks but no. I'll watch carefully upon the next instance. Thanks.
