    Difference in files/folders from backup of files


    I copied the contents from my main hard drive to a backup hard drive and want to verify if I am missing any files.

    I copied my files with teracopy and verified that all files transferred and were successful. When I click on the root folder from both drives they have a difference of 16 folders and a couple dozen files. When i go inside the root folder and select all the contents then click on properties windows says I have the same exact files/folders on both drives. It even shows the exact same amount of bytes.

    Am I missing files/folders? Why does windows display a different amount of files/folder when viewing the properties of the root folder then it does when I go inside the folder and select all the files/folders manually and view the properties?

    :)

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/file_list_generator.htm

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.

    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one
