  • Compare a folder with a snapshot of the same folder

    I would like to be able to select a folder, create a snapshot of it, have some program make changes to the folder, and then compare the snapshot with the folder to see what changed.

    I feel like this is possible already, but I can't seem to figure out how.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    No problem. We can make a Snapshot (of the metadata, a virtual file listing with no content) using the Tools menu -> Save Snapshot. The saved .bcss file can be loaded or drag/dropped as a Folder in the Folder Compare, and the other side can be the real folder.

    We have a detailed KB article (where you can use the bcss to compare against disconnected machines) here:
