I recently acquired a new Drobo FS w/ 5-3Tb drives.
I am consolidating various individual singular 300Gb, 500Gb, 1Tb, 1.5Tb and 2.0Tb drives to the Drobo.
Data has been scattered across these drives for years, and may very well be duplicated.
I’ve tried a few utilities, scripts, etc., but all do not want to “see” the folders on the Drobo for sync/comparison purposes, and I cannot compare data on external drives to copy to Drobo.
Although I did find one called ‘Sync Two Folders’, it only worked if I created a sub directory in the folder on the Drobo and dumped all the data there.
Even so, the application is sluggish at best, and with 100’s of thousands of files I’d much rather compare folders instead of a single folder with tons of data.
Anyway, DeltaWalker fails, as well as others.
I’m looking for an application that will allow me to simply compare a hard disk with files on the Drobo.
