Description

Hi and thanks for this great product.

It would be a great help if I can do the directories comparison size AND date together.

Actualy, I do a date comparison THEN a size comparison.

in the menu "View" " directory comparison" I can choose between size and date.

I would like 2 check box, one filesize and one time.

Thank in advance

Eric

Justification for this feature request:

An important use case (probably the primary use case) of directory comparison is to identify files that have changed. A change in either the file size or the modification timestamp would suggest a changed file. Therefore, the most useful way to check for a changed file would be to show any changes in the size or the timestamp at the same time.

Users currently have to manually toggle between size comparison and timestamp comparison to check for any changes. This is tedious, especially when reviewing lots of directories.

Simultaneously checking both the size and the timestamp for changes is a standard technique used by many different comparison/backup utilities, such as rsync, WinMerge, etc.
