How to compare the local folder and ShareFile folders?

We managed to utilise the sample code in GitHub UploadLocalFiles.ps1 and managed to transfer the 13.3 GB data from local to the ShareFile.

We also utilised the ShareFile Mapped Drive and we did the comparison manually by right click and Properties of the root folder and compare with the ShareFile one. Is this best method? Is there any PowerShell ShareFile that can do this instead? It took awhile to run this process.

Hi,

Could you expand a bit on what exactly you'd like to compare? Any general properties like total folder size, or do you want to check each file one by one and see what differs?

Thanks,
Eli

We would like to compare the local folder (ex. D:\Data\Archives\CustomerData\) with SF folder (//Shared Folders/Data/Archives/CustomerData) in total size and contains the number of files and folders.

Actually, we found that there is a tool called ShareFile Drive Mapper and we can do simply right click Properties to see the size and number of files.
