    Okay, thanks, that is good news.

    I wonder if a snapshot includes path name ?

    That's good, thanks Christoph and Michael.

    A related question. Several times recently I've had occasion to want to check for missing files in a scenario where left folder contains a bunch of files with original names and right folder contains a subset of the contents of left folder with original names modified by prefix or suffix. For example, using prefix...

    File1.txt == January-File1.txt
    File2.txt == January-File2.txt
    File3.txt
    File4.txt
    File5.txt == January-File5.txt

    Is there a way of transforming names on one side or the other - e.g. to add or subtract a prefix/suffix? In this case, it would be a simpler approach than using CRC.

    Regards, AB

    Having looked at what's possible with Session --> Folder Compare Report, the one column label that is not listed/selectable is Name, presumably because it is assumed that a name comparison is always required. If Name was added as an option, and could therefore be unchecked, it would be become trivial to compare on CRC/Size/Modified.

    Consider this duly suggested.

    Easy with Linux, just parse through a folder/path, and add a prefix/sufix to the filename.

    Not sure if windooze can do it though ??

    Either the second or forth post at http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/lin...ript-help.html , will do it.

    So long as the prefix is constant throughout the folder, you can use:
    Session \ Session Settings... \ Misc tab \ Alignment overrides

    Click New...
    Align left file: *
    with right file: January-*

    If your prefix can differ, then you would need to code a smarter alignment override using a regular expression

    What I actually have is a bunch of digital images in one folder and some of the same images in another folder, renamed with a shooting date/time prefix, e.g.

    IMG_4634.JPG == 2010_01_10_19_38_58_IMG_4634.JPG
    IMG_4635.JPG == 2010_01_10_19_38_58_IMG_4635.JPG
    IMG_4636.JPG == 2010_01_10_19_38_58_IMG_4636.JPG
    IMG_4637.JPG == (missing)
    IMG_4638.JPG == 2010_01_10_19_41_01_IMG_4638.JPG
    etc.

    The prefix is a constant length, but variable text. My level of competence with regular expressions is, at best, embarrassing. If some kind soul could point me in the right direction I'd be grateful.

    A couple of notes: the Alignment Overrides feature is only in BC3 Pro.

    It also will not help with your current issue. The Regular Expression can be useful in defining the specific, matching text, but cannot match on the different text. In this case, your prefix (2010_01_10_19... must be explicit while IMG_4634 can be a regular expression.

    In this case you would align:
    (IMG_\d*\.jpg)
    with 2010_01_10_19_38_58_$1

    We do not currently allow masking on the matchTo side. This is on our Customer Wishlist.

    Try this:

    Align left file: [0-9,_]+(IMG_\d\d\d\d.JPG)
    with right file: $1

    It should work if your date qualified files are on the left.
