This utility will compare a source and destination file tree and sync files between the two, compensating for failed previous copy attempts (resulting in 0kb files), issues resulting from *exceptionally* long directory structure and file names, as well as date sync issues. I made this utility specifically to compensate for issues arising from our migration of our old eDirectory server to our new server.

I’m happy to answer questions and correct issues, if I can and if time allows. Feel free to email.

The options are self explanatory, the tool will add any scanned directory to a cache skip list, on a second run any directory scanned previously will be skipped. You can press the ‘Reset Logged Directories’ button to reset this behavior.

Tool is provided as is, no warranty. I take no responsibility if this tool causes ANY damage, destroys your file system deletes files or takes away your birthday!

    It seems the utility does not copy sub directory files, but only the parent directory. Is there any option for it to copy sub directoiries as well or we have to go to each sub directory? We do the Simulate, and it shows sub directories as well, but when we run the real copy, only the parent directories are copied.

    1. files and folders wasn’t delete on target, if they doesn’t exist on source
    2. the same file on the target was overwrite, if it is newer
    3. no trustees was copied
