I know it's not what you asked for, but I have to mention, for folder sync type activities I use an external tool for this, and find it a more effective approach. But everybody works differently and has different perspectives.

Anyway, I have a couple of tools that I use for file and folder comparisons and sync activities. The first is Beyond Compare, the more powerful of the two, but costs a very reasonable $30 USD one time. I use this as my alt compare for files in ZT.

  • Beyond Compare

  • The other alternative is an open source free tool that does much of the same thing, with a slightly different approach and look and feel.

  • WinMerge - You will see the difference…

  • Both are worth a look, and can be great tools.
