Compare File Properties - Compare Files By Content, Generic Attributes, and Meta-Properties.

Act On File Windows Compatibility Seals

This section discusses the Compare File Properties functionality of the Comparator module.
The Compare File Properties functionality is used to compare files by all of their known properties, such as: content, filename, size, times, attributes and all recognized data and meta properties. For example, a binary data file has only generic properties that are known, but besides these an image also has many other known properties, such as: height, width, color scheme, palette, time of capturing, geographic location, etc. The Compare File Properties functionality helps find matching, duplicated, derived and otherwise related or non-related files and folders.

Operation

Select the files that you want to compare. Adjust any applicable settings. Click the Compare button. Once the comparison process is complete you can see the results listed in the result window. Each new property found in a file is placed in a new row, thus every property type found in the files has its own row. The filename of each file is placed as a column title. Since every file has its own column, it crosses all rows. Therefore, if a file has a property of some type, its value is placed on the respective row for that property type. Thus the result of the comparison operation is a table of all properties found in all of the selected files. Unlike the Compare Files and Folders window, here it is possible to select more than one row in the result window. If you select a row in the result window, the files that have that property will be listed in the Selected Properties Aggregation window together with the value of that property for each file. If you select more than one row (i.e. property), Act On File will display a intersection or union on the files that have the selected properties (rows). The Aggregation Operator control defines whether to display intersection or union on the files. When the aggregation operator is set to intersection, a file will only be displayed if it has all of the selected properties. When the aggregation operator is set to union then a file will be displayed if it has at least one of the selected properties. Using the context menu in the Selected Properties Aggregation view, you can perform typical file/folder manipulation operations and locate the file in the selected items view and in the file system.
