Hi people,

Can anyone here please help me with the Powershell script which can compare the shared directory content (subfolders and files )between \\Source\SharedDir1 and \\Destination\SharedDir2 ?

I need to know what's missing in the destination file server so I can manually copied it.

The background on this problem is that, I've done Robocopy from one file server to another file server, but somehow there are some things that still missing or moved by user.

There are about 2.78 million files in total of 198 GB in the source file server, hence if I run the Robocopy script again, it may take long to copy or list which file was not copied properly ? Because Robocopy also does not produce it that shows only file that is error.

Thanks in advance.
