    AS stated a few times, I resolved it by completely removing BC4 and reinstalling. There obviously needs to be a fix to BC4 to prevent it from happening.
  3. Have you been able to replicate the problem.

    Have you been able to replicate the problem.

    I sent an email to Scooter software, containing a cut down version of the sessions XML file, so hopefully you can replicate the problem.

    The default columns to display are size and modified. If I add another column, in this case, CRC, and then remove CRC column view, I'm left with the defaults, size and modified.

    To answer your...

    Sorry to jump in on this thread, but I just saw the "strace" and realised it may be handy to troubleshoot problems. Thanks :)

    The problem session /$HOME/Downloads loads instantaneously now, because I removed everything and reinstalled. Fresh start. However, what you have described, should fix it. I remember I did actually...

    It says 'Rules based' - that is because I removed BC$ and all the config/settings and re-installed. So it is currently showing the default.



    The CRC column isn't visible, reason being the same...

    Just opened the file BCSettings.bcpkg with Ark and realised it is just a backup of those XML files. Did an export and will compare the old fileset to the new. These backups contain ..

    Yes I did try that. There is one XML file called sessions and basically the new one doesn't have much data in it at all, because that was the first session and the backup had a lot of data with...

    As you can see by the last 'edit' line in the post above, I was basically unable to use BC4 at all. That said, if I did specify a small path with no folders beneath it, it would display. But unable...
  12. Folder/file display taking a very longt time ?

    I have noticed BC4 very slow lately. Today I opened a new session, compare files/folders, just on the /home/*****/Downoads path. This usually takes a few seconds to display, but it has already been...
  13. Okay thanks Chris, I have done that. Hope that...

    Okay thanks Chris, I have done that. Hope that won't slow BC4 down - need to create a new post.

    The problem appeared in a minor way today. It was a folder/files view, and I just wanted to move a number of files from left to right. So I selected all the files to be moved. But it missed some ? I...

    Okay thanks Aaron, for your advice and how to log/debug if it happens again.

    I'm not able to reproduce the results that showed the inconsistancies. Possibly if it does happen agin, I can run a debug or similar ??

    It was simply a privacy issue, not to post the full path name, as in Linux it has the username (login name).



    If you view the 3rd attachment, it shows the lhs as 28,141,496 and the rhs as...

    Some screenshots to explain what happened. Hmm, the attachments aren't appearing in the same order as I uploaded them..

    Anyway, for the first screendump (file BC4_Post_16239_3.png), I did an...

    Yes it does fix the problem for me. My reply wasn't so much for USB devices, but I often find copies and compares don't work when (for example) I have a external drive and comparing against the paths...
  20. BC4 giving inconsistant results for the same folder/files compare

    Version 4.2.3 (build 22587)
    Kubuntu 16.04

    Yesterday I was comparing 2 versions of wordpress in 2 seperate folders. I knew there would be differences, so was surprised when BC4 stated all files...

    I have found BC is very 'particular' with file permissions, and that is good. For example, it may issue a message that a compare fails and (for me) it is usually file permissions. Often I have to run...

    Just wondering if beyond Compare uses single-threading or is able to utilise multi-threading with CPU usage ?
