Ive copied a huge chunk of word files from a user's My Docs to a server. Which ill point My docs to shortly. I checked the overall file size and the My Docs is a few KB larger than the files i copied over, but file amount is the same. I want to see which files goofed and recopy them.

Note its about 2400 file :twitch:

you on linux by any chance? could use some nice bash magic to do that.

or you could use "offline folders" of windows to copy and sync

I put cygwin on my USB stick and was gonna run some bash magic off that. I did move the target to the network map for My Documents. So it syncs itself from that to local for a cached copy.

I did keep the original files in C:\Documents and Settings\user\My Documents. But im thinking Windows synced over those. But maybe not. I basically went ahead to hope for the best. its a few kb, maybe the corrupted files are old :p

Size or size on disk? Size on disk can be different based on the filesystem. ie a 1 byte file takes up 4KB if your cluster size is 4KB instead of 1 byte.
