How to check backup folder&


I receive six files from one company, but four of them have identical data inside and file size.I have not time to manually delete duplicated files, so I want just disregard duplicated files.

If files were loaded they should be moved to backup folder. I think I should check all files in backup folder and if some file has similar size - qlikview should disregard it.

maybe somebody solved such problem? please advise best way

Re: How to check backup folder&

Qlikview is not the tool for this. There are utilities that can scan files and remove duplicate files. Find such a tool and create a scheduled task to run that tool periodically.

See for example Best Free Duplicate File Remover
