Windows 10: Merge Directories

  1.    10 Sep 2015 #1

    Merge Directories


    I have two large Directories (about 25 GB each, 6-7000 files) that contain
    similar information. One may have newer files than the other. I would like
    to merge them into one Directory and eliminate duplicate files.

    Is there some software that can do that ?

    Thanks,

    Richard S.

    You can try: FreeFileSync | Free backup software to synchronize files and synchronize folders on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X
    You can setup for one way sync with new file(s) to overwrite the old file(s). Once done, keep the folder with all files synced and delete the other.

    NOTE: Be careful when installing freeware. Read carefully on each screen during setup and decline the extra options to install any software/toolbar etc...

    you could also try robocopy

    eg
    Code:
    robocopy "C:\Directory with new things" "C:\Directory with old things" /b /e /r:0 /w:0 /xo /copyall /mt

    Can also just move/copy one over the other and say NO to overwrite question, delete leftovers from the first folder.

    The only problem with that is there are over 7,700 files.
