How can I automatically batch -sort -select and -move duplicate files from five different backups in Windows?

Kit November 16, 2010

Let’s say I have 5 different copies of “My Documents”, each from a different date and each with 50 GB or more. I would like to search all 5 sets, find duplicates, then automatically move one file from each set of duplicates to a 6th set, in the SAME folder structure, that will become my one consolidated and final version of MY DOCUMENTS -OR/AND – use the same process in comparison to a backup version that will move any file not found into the backup version.

Is there a software package that will do this?

    Try Directory Report
    It can find duplicates and compare the contents of two directories
