HI All ,

due to a disk problem we have 3 disk at different time updated at different time and need to work out when/ what was updated !

need to write a bactch file to compare one live folder to 2 old folder witch user (unknow to us) had been using & updating so need to find out what was updated when. cant just use the date as different uses update different parts of the file !!! so need to find out if the files was updated /when on each disk - then we get the roge users to check them ... need to also create a report of all of above ..with what was changed & date change.

was tring this :-
fc  new-server.txt old-server.txt > diff.txt /lb /u   - but the text file are reporting -
                                                                       Resync Failed.  Files are too different.
                                                                       ***** new-server.txt

so need to do it live unless any one can avise different !
