QuestionFolder Backup Consolidations PinprotectorDaveAuld7-Mar-14 4:34 
Over the years as I have moved computers / upgraded computers / swapped laptops etc. I have created a backup copy (using a copy/paste) of the the old data from Documents /Desktop / whole drives etc.
 
Now I have multiple copies of various files in various states spread across NAS drives and other hard disks.
 
I have folders with backups like;
Backup-5-10-12
BigYin Backup @ 2010-03-32
BigYin Backup 2009-12-07
Laptop Backup - 09-01-24
Laptop_Backup_14_10_12
Win7_Recovery
Ex-DMA-XP-MAchine
ZZZ - Data / BigYin Backup 2009-12-07
ZZZ - Data / Daves-Laptop-6935-Backup
Backup_03_05_2013
 
and of course there is the current files with the automatic versioning / backup maintained by windows.
 
Has anybody got any [free] software recommendations (as in stuff you have actually used) that can help de-dupe/sort/restructure automatically/check for bit level difference/date info/filenames etc.etc.etc.
 
Or will I have to fire up VS and start to write my own, which I really couldn't be bothered with at the moment. Dead | X|
 
There must be many of you who are in this state and have been through similar exercises.
 
Cheers,
