Re: Verifying backups

I re-read your original post, and it sounds like you are doing the compare at the drive level. In my case, the "root" of both of my compares was a specific folder, and inside of it, was all my pictures in multiple sub-folders.

If possible, I would create a directory on the root of the drive (maybe My Pictures) and when you do the compare between drives, don't compare the data from the drive property page. Instead, look at the properties of the folders that all your pictures are in.

If you compare the actual hard drives, you could get extra size and the same number of files / folders showing up, as the size may be counting OS and other files on the root of the drive.
