    We may need a bit more information to help troubleshoot this. Perhaps work with a very small test folder set (a dozen files) with before and after screenshots?

    Triggering an alignment would refresh the display, the aligned file pair might be pushed up or down based on where its new position would be.

    You can post here or email us at support@scootersoftware.com (with a link back to this forum thread for reference).

    Ignore folder structure resolved the issue.

    Just noticed this thread.
    Have the same issue (see my thread).
    My suggestion was/is to add a new option to 'Rules'
    'Ignore filename comparison'

    Filename comparison is 'ON' by default, hardcoded I think.
    But -only- when CRC comparison is selected, then this new option, let's say it is displayed under 'Compare versions' and
    greyed out-tagged by default, becomes accessible and users can untag that option.

    Once selecting comparing on CRC then untag that.
    (see my post)

    Indeed, it isn't there, regretfully so.

    My suggestion was: to add that [new!] option there.
    Ignore filenames: by default greyed out
    Once CRC comparison is selected, then it can be tagged, so there is no filename comparison but just on hash.

    Trying to illustrate what I mean, see below.

    Hopefully Scooter Software developers will consider this...
    If I am not mistaken, I think this is something similar has been requested before by others.

    Hello,

    We appreciate the feedback. This option is not a small enhancement, but is something on our wishlist. Scanning by criteria requires creating the entire hash before we could display anything, so it would appear to be loading slower. Also, handling external changes (when another program makes changes to files and folders while the comparison is already loaded in BC4). It's a large change, and not one we'll likely be able to implement soon.

    I see that this subject can be found in several messages, so my idea is that maybe a not complete solution, a starting point, might be to use the file size as the alignment filed.

    Thank You very much and regards

    Very sad to read this. It seems a regular thing. How often users are renaming files, store them elsewhere and later download roughly the same files again, except for may be a dozen or so new or changed files.
    Beyond Compare should make it easy to filter the duplicate files, based on date-time or CRC needcase.

    I don't know how to do this right now...
