  • How to see folders and files in folder compare

    I have a download folder on my PC which contains folders, and loose files of photos, music and video.I regularly copy to an eternal drive using BC which I just updated to the latest version. The folder compare function used to reveal all files. Now, no matter how hard I try, I can't get the program to reveal all files and not just folders. All the files have been copied OK. I do a windows search and they're there. What can I do to make BC reveal folders and files at the same time in Folder Compare?

    Does it help if you set the display filter to View > Show All (* star toolbar icon)? If all files are the same and the display filter is set to View > Show Differences, then no files will be visible.

      Thank you Chris for your response. I've tried all available combinations, and I get folders only.

        OK, as a last resort I just deleted that folder compare and started a fresh one, and voila all is revealed: files and folders. Have a wonderful week Chris.
