I've come to the point where I feel that I MUST re-organize and properly place my data and also back it up in a way that I'll know exactly what is where.
I spent much of today just going through all my hard drives (internal and external) and listing what is stored in each.
As suspected I have a certain amount of duplicates. I'm not sure though if these are accidental, or backups.
I'm looking for some software (preferably freeware) that can help me compare data between two hard drives, or two folders, and tell me two things:
1. If there are any duplicate files
2. If there are 2 (or more) files supposedly the same, but one has been more recently modified and therefore a bit different (size and/or date modified).
For example: I have a My Pictures folder on a laptop and a My Pictures folder on a desktop and yet a third My Pictures folder on an external drive. I want to compare the three folders and combine them into one up-to-date ultimate My Pictures folder - which includes all images from all three folders, yet with only the most recent version of the same image and no duplicates.
