Looking for software suggestion

Postby piglets222 » Wed Mar 26, 2008 1:32 pm

I'm actually not sure exactly what to be more specific on so...

I will just state what it is I'm needing to do and maybe someone will have a suggestion...

so it's like this I have a windows xp desktop and my wmp library is saying I have 900 songs,

I have my main music folders backed up on 3 discs...

and I put them in my windows vista laptop, and I have only 600 songs, so what I'm wanting to do is have the same songs that are on the xp, on the vista, I dont know if maybe there is a way to make a list and compare from within the wmp softwares... so maybe if someone can suggest a Free 3rd party software where I can take both playlists/librarys I can compare them to and see what I need or am missing....?

windiff compares directories, and individual files.

that might not work very well cause the files on the desktop are spread thro many directorys and how would I compare that to the files on the laptop....

You want a Sync tool. Windiif is good, but hard to setup/automate for many locations. Here are 2 free ones, I don't have any experience with them, but they look ez enough.
