we have a file server (Windows 2008 Server) with approx. 800.000 files stored on one share. Sometimes users copy complete directories with subdirectories to other locations on this share. We want to find those duplicate directories using a software tool.
If there there are two identical top folders with many subfolders, this tool should only report the two identical top folders, not all the subfolders. We don't care about duplicate files (there are too many of them). We are just interested in duplicate directory structures. We already tried some tools for finding duplicate files. Unfortunately they report all subfolders of identical top folders.
If C:\Folder1 and C:\SomeOtherFolder\Folder1 are identical, all tested duplicate finder tools report 6 lines. For us it would be better, if it would just report 2 lines (C:\Folder1 and C:\SomeOtherFolder\Folder1).
Anybody knows a software which can handle this?
