I need an option where two files would match only if their content is equal, if and only if their date is not equal. Using the CRC option alone could be used, but this is so slow. There is a good reason to ask for this: in some of my folders, some files are generated by some software (eg. MIDL compiler). When a file is generated, it has a new date, however, in many cases, the file contents will be the same. Hence a backup is not necessary in this case and the file should be excluded.
In other words, the logic should be:

if date/size equal -> file not selected for backup
else if and only if (file size or CRC) is different, file is selected for backup.

Hi - in the comparison settings of ViceVersa there is the option to "Ignore Timestamp", did you try if that works for you? thanks
