2 FREE ways to compare files

31 Jan 2010 Ferado

When developing software or just working with a lot of files and folders. There comes a time when you need to figure out the differences in your files and folders. When that time comes, you can either spend a lot of money on something fancy, or you can go the free way and take a look at the following free file compare programs.

ExamDiff

It’s pretty easy to get started. Just select your files and then compare them. The only thing I don’t like about this one is that it doesn’t let you compare folders.

The thing I liked most about this one is that it let me compare my folders. I use this when I have to figure out if something was changed that wasn’t in my versioning system. Really saved me some time.
