Compare Folders or Folder Structures and Find Similarities

Copied files are a problem on many servers. Finding duplicate files is a start, but finding entire duplicate file and folder structures can save a lot of work. Detecting similar file directories, however, is not an easy task if done by hand. Luckily, SpaceObServer will help you find the similarities.

The statistic "Similar Folders" shows folders or file trees with similar content.

The search uses MD5 hash sums to compare file conent. The statistic compares found folder pairs:

  • The list shows the degree to which the folders match.
  • A comparison enables users to check the folder's content and check which files (if any) differ.

Compare folders and file trees to find similarities and duplicate content

If a folder pair is opened for comparison, SpaceObServer marks changed files in red.
