  • Compare Folders - add column for a metadata property ?

    Hi, New poster but old user. Been using Beyond Compare since 2005. Presently using version 4, both the Windows (4.2.9, build 23626, 64 bit) and Linux (4.3.3, build 24545) versions.

    Not sure there's a way to do this but thought I would ask: when comparing two folders, is there a way to add a column of a specific metadata property? For instance, I use Beyond Compare to manage my music folders. It would be nice if I could add a column for, say, "genre", "bit rate" or "year".

    Is there a way to do that? If so, how?

    Thank you for any help given.

    Thanks for the feedback. The Folder Compare supports a small subset of columns (right click the columns to see a dropdown of the subset available), but doesn't include these media columns. Expanding this support is something on our Customer Wishlist, and I'll add these notes and column ideas to our entry on the subject. Our wishlist is not currently scheduled development, but a place our developers go for ideas for future features and enhancements.
