Comparing files on PC with what's on BT Cloud

Post by the_searcher » Sun Sep 08, 2019 5:48 pm

Hello all - hoping for a bit of advice from you guys. Completely new to using duplicate file software of any kind.

Would anyone be able to advise how I would (or even if it's possible!) compare what's on my PC with what I have uploaded to the BT Cloud? (200GB of files on the cloud). If you're able to assist that would be great but please keep it as simple as possible! :D

Many thanks for your help, much appreciated.

It should be possible but Duplicate Cleaner would need to be able to read the files somehow (It needs a drive letter or a network path)

See FAQ here-

It'll be similar to the situation with the other cloud providers.

So you'd need to be able to do one of the following-
-Have your BT Cloud files synced with a copy on your machine
-Map BT Cloud as a network drive.

I'm not sure what facilities are offered by this cloud service - more research needed.
