duplicates but on one disc only

Post by Terka » Sat Jan 02, 2021 3:24 pm

is it possible to find files, that have same filename and size, but restrict the search on one disc only?
eg:

"duplicate"
u:\file
u:\temp\file

o:\file
o:\temp\file

not "duplicate"
u:\file2
o:\file2

I will remove the duplicates from disc u: and then replicate the changes on disc o:

Thank you

That is a bit out of the comfort zone of Everything and you are probably better off using a specialized tool for this, but it is possible:
  • In Everything search for one disk, for example:
    U:\
  • Export the results as type EFU Everything File List (*.efu) : ( Menu:File > Export )
  • Open the file list you just created: Menu:File > Open File List
  • Seearch for
    dupe:
    to find duplicates on disk U:\
  • When done, close the file list (Menu:File > Close File List)
You can now repeat these steps for your O:-drive


Note:
A file list is a static list. If you delete files, the entries in the list will not be updated.
