I'm looking for someone to write me a script (anything that will run on osx) to do the following:
Copy all files from 4 different external hard drives, one at a time.
The script does not need to retain folder structure, I want it to dump all files from all drives in to one main folder.
After copying files from the first drive to the destination path, I then want it to start copying files from the second drive (possibly using rsync) in to the same main destination folder.
If files have the same name, but contents is different, I want it to rename the files and then copy to destination.
If files have same name and identical contents, skip copying.
If files have different name and identical contents, skip copying.
When comparing files, i think it would be wise to use multiple checks/balances. Example, if file names are the same and byte size is the same, md5 it and if thats a match, skip copying one of them.
If file names are the same and the byte size is different, rename one of them and copy both to destination.
This is really hard to explain, so feel free to ask me any questions you like. Also please let me know what you would charge to do this and how soon it can be completed.
