Need To Compare Folders

Recommended Posts

FlintBrenick

I'm wanting to make find a script that can do the following:

I want to examine two different folders and see a list of all the files & folders (and their paths) that exist in one folder but not the other.

Does anything like this already exist?

Thanks

Moved to the support forum. The example forum is not for questions.

Your question doesn't make much sense... what is "not the other"?

Look at _FileListToArrayEx or _FileListToArrayNew in the search directory of the forum.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I'm thinking he wants something like:

#Include <File.au3>
#Include <Array.au3>
$folder1 = "D:\Folder 1"
$folder2 = "D:\Folder 2"
$folders = _FindFolderFileDifferences ($folder1, $folder2)
_ArrayDisplay ($folders)

Func _FindFolderFileDifferences ($folder1, $folder2, $filters = "*", $options = 0)
    Local $temparray[1]
    Local $count = 1
    Local $_Folder1 = _FileListToArray ($folder1, $filters, $options)
    Local $_Folder2 = _FileListToArray ($folder2, $filters, $options)
    
    For $i = 1 to $_folder1[0]
        If _ArraySearch ($_folder2, $_folder1[$i]) = -1 Then
            ReDim $temparray[$count+1]
            $temparray[$count] = $_folder1[$i]
            $count += 1
        EndIf
    Next
    
    $temparray[0] = $count - 1
    Return $temparray
EndFunc

It finds files in Folder 1 that do not exist in Folder 2.
