Sep 15, 2012 6:11 PM

trying to compare my hard drive with my external drive to determine what folders (200gb worth) are missing from the ext drive.

there is a difference of about 200gb between the 2 drives.


is there a sodtware that will do that.  if not i have to manually compare folders and i am going blind doing it.

    Shoulda used Scooter Software's Beyond Compare - most useful utility ever written, in my book.

    There are many on this forum with more experience moving from PC to Mac.


    BC just allows you to assure all files you want to be wherever are there where you want them, and compare if files existing in both places, etc...


    That said, I think yes: when you load your catalog on the Mac, all the photos will appear missing at first. But I think it's just a matter of showing it where top-level folders are and then it will find everything in the rest of the tree. But, I've never actually done that m'self, so take with salt.


    Maybe somebody else will have more specific experience/advise...


    (I dunno what blue/red means - but I would think you want all photos copied to new (ext) drive - none short...)


    One thing for sure: make sure you have a backup, and/or practice on a test catalog so you don't hose your only/main catalog while you're fumbling.
