    Default Identify unique folders in a location?

    Here is my predicament:

    I've got a music folder on the PC and the same one on the external HD. Although some of the ones on the PC are new, and don't exist on the external HD.

    Is there any quick way of finding out which ones these are and then copy those over?

    I have 900+ in each folder for what it's worth, so not easy to find unique folders in the PC.

    Just drag all the files onto the external hard drive, when it asks to 'replace', 'copy' or 'skip' duplicate files, tick 'do this for all files' then 'skip'. All files not on the drive will be copied over.

    Windiff - old school but quick and effective.

    WinMerge - newer, much nicer, more features, but more bloated.
