    Okay, thanks!
    Bad luck then. As said, currently copying is the only way to go, but in case of very big files and folders, well, that takes a while.
    Anyway.. thanks again.

    Thanks. Bad luck. In case of doing this for a number of files requires quite a lot of clicking and is not really an option, i.e one need to resort to a duplicate file finder of some sort.

    Automatically move specific filetypes

    Up front, maybe Beyond Compare isn't the right tool for it, I don't know, reason for asking here.
    What I am looking for is a tool that:

    Many thanks.
    Maybe also show the total size when selecting files/folders?
    I assume that BC does not need to re-calculate those as it already did so when comparing.

  12. Copy speed, comparing with dedicated tools

    When using 3rd party backup software, users have to 'set up' initial backup profiles as well, i.e. what should be backed up to where.

    Folder size: only 1 folder size displayed

    It strikes me that, when comparing folders, the size is displayed once only, i.e. not on both sides, but just on 1 side only, let's say left.

    See attachment.

    Can that be solved with some...

    Up front, I use Beyond Compare fairly basic and likely using only a fraction of its features. I am not interested in scripting matters as it will take me much more time than I might possibly save.
