    After transporting user data (> 5000 files) from old PC to new PC verification of data against transporting USB-memory desired. Search for adequate tool in Windows 8.1 fruitless, but FreeFileSync just the perfect tool - and apparently with more great functions and settings to be explored later (macros, autofunctions, filtering and more...) - just had a look into what seems a quite extensive Help function; translation of this Help function contents into local language (Danish) would be nice though. Very easy to use intuitively for the first time - refer to #Overview in Help.
