Great app

Does exactly what I need. The only thing I noticed is that when the "On Startup: Restore Recently Compared Folders"option is checked, and if the most recently compared folders were network locations that you no longer have access to, then the app will not start. Otherwise awesome!

Great App, straight forward

This app works as stated and more. I needed to compare files in 2 directories down t the file and size. One being on a stick and the other on the MAC. Not only does it have 10 selection but you can select type of files. In addtion, when clicking on a file, the directory containing the file opens so you can see the file and it's folder. I've used complicated compare utilities and this one get to the point and I did not need to waste time figuring it out. I may have been abel to use the free dnload however, when a proram works and resonably priced... I gladly paided for it. Good job Naarak Studio/DirEqual

Very nice

I recently made a Finder backup of a 600+GB folder and received a message saying that not everything was copied due to not having the right permissions. So, I downloaded this app and ran a comparison of the source versus destination folders. The application was intuitively designed, quick to run, and very clear in how it displayed results. I did not use the “Compare file contents” option, so I’m not reviewing how that works, but in just doing a folder comparison I can tell you that it’s very useful and accurate. Thank You for a great app.
