can seem to figure out how to ignore last date

Postby rtparies » Thu Dec 06, 2012 9:10 pm

Hello,
I am comparing a lot of files where the last mod dates are different because they are on on different servers and can be touched.
what i need to make sure is that the content is the same.
But i can not seem to find the option that ignores dates and just looks at content?

am i missing something or is there a way to do this?

thanks

In your Options in the Compare category, please check if the "File Compare method:" is set to "Full Contents".
If it's set to full contents, then it should work for you.

This doesn't work for me. When I compare two mp3 folders on different computers, it shows all folders are different because the dates are different, yet I know only some are different because I've added or deleted folders or files on the primary source. Nothing I'm clicking in View or Options is just showing differences by content rather than date.
