As opposed to a metric shit ton?

I've always wondered how that compares to the Imperial shit ton.

Not really. A metric year is an even 400 days long.

Wouldn't it make more sense if the year started on a solstice?

Not so,

A Ton is a Ton,

Likewise,

A Tonne is a Tonne.

I want to slim down my cloud storage, I have several cloud stores, and want to merge them. I'm not looking for a recommendation for storage, I am looking for a way to merge them locally, whilst removing duplicate documents, folders etc. I know I could do this manually, but that could take weeks. Ideally it'll be freeware.

Idaes?

arabella:

Do the duplicate files have the same name?
Are you able to copy the files from cloud to local?
Is there a specific arrangement you have in mind for everything (that is, arrangement of folders and files within these folders)?

I'm just trying to think if there's a way to build a script or something to help.

Is there a specific arrangement you have in mind for everything (that is, arrangement of folders and files within these folders)? No, I simply want to bring them all to a single place (local drive) then I can index them all, remove duplicates that didn't get caught automatically, and then drop 'em onto a flash drive (or similar)

Sounds like I could easily to do manually, which I could, but it would consume many hours, hours I just don't have.

Any help automating the process would be well received.

Oh, lastly... should I assume this is a Windows operating system?

If it's Windows, see if you can put all of the folders holding the remote files into one folder. Then, using Windows Explorer (tap Win-E to pull it up), browse to the one folder holding all the other folders, and in the upper-right you should see an edit box with 'Search Qu...' or the like in it. Click on that, and type in a glob describing the files you want to copy (or just '*' if you want everything). ThThis should search through all subfolders for your files.. if it doesn't, look for the 'Search' tab at the top of Explorer and select 'All subfolders'. Click on any one file you want to copy, then tap 'Ctrl-A' to select all of the files. Tap 'Win-E' to bring up another Explorer window, and browse to where you want these to go, and drag-n-drop them into the folder.

It is Windows, I will follow your instructions.

Thanks Fleeb
