This feature is one that can be terribly useful. It shows files by directory and sub-directory. It compares them by date/time stamp and by file size. One will concentrate on files that are completely different, or ones that are identical.

Two similar panes

Panes can be duplicated from one aspect to the opposite. Panes will represent original directories compared to copied or backed-up ones. These will then be matched in additional detail within the synchronize directory feature.

    Tabbed navigation

Tabs are for directories. Sets of tabs may be saved to files that may be reloaded to supply the identical 2 panels and their tabs that one set up and saved. Tabs may be designed to permit no changes to them, or to open sub-directories in new tabs, in order that the initial tab remains intact and out there.
