Seems to be updated again

Nonpareil gossip hither mentions the computer programme hasn't been updated since 2009, but the flow reading up for download on the mathematical product website is from February 2013. So if it was derelict at approximately point, it doesn't appear to be anymore.

What I'm concerned about is, as mentioned by another commenter, that it doesn't compare adult files and subesequently declares folders as identical that actually aren't. Does anyone know whether this is/was a real number problem, and whether it might have been fixed since?

Edit: afterward victimisation the course of study for a patch I defendant the commenter in doubt mightiness rich person overlooked the "quick equate limit" setting. It allows to band a filesize bound above which only the commencement and cobbler's last parts of a single file are actually compared, alternatively of a arrant comparison. The boundary seems to be capped at 2000MB though, so that's something to consider if you deficiency to economic consumption it with files bigger than that. This sole applies to leaflet comparison, of course. Direct charge comparisons are done in full.

I do a batch of binary comparisons to brand certain telecasting files and entire CDs/DVDs are exactly the same, bite for bit. WinMerge is a bunch slower than Beyond Compare. Otherwise, it full treatment great. It isn't decelerate enough to make me deprivation to earnings for Beyond Compare YET, although I wealthy person been tempted.

Technically it industrial plant but Beyond Compare is better. Winmerge is free, but it hasn't been updated in ages. Beyond Equate has been nether constant development, and it is apparent. Beyond Liken is identical polished, and easygoing to use. Almost things it does correctly right come out of the box, though it's hush charles frederick worth look at the menus to anatomy come out of the closet what it's doing and not doing.

Winmerge, on the early hand, does things wrong. Once you archeological site done all the menus and options, you commode bent it up to do what you want, and it'll do a commodity book of job of it, but it's clumsy and harder to attend the useful information. Beyond Compare is so much better, I'd omission Winmerge evening though it's free.

Beyond Equate is not free, but it has a fully-functional 30 24-hour interval trial, so equitable employment that if you solitary demand it temporarily. If you indigence it longer, it's worth buying. It's genuinely incredible.

Not impressed with WinMerge. It has problems with bracing the view, displays pathnames in offprint directory/filename columns devising it selfsame difficult to record especially in sir herbert beerbohm tree mode, doesn't deference the alternative to discount CR/LF differences, and assorted former faults.
