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.

This is the one

I tested several of the File/Folder compare apps, and this was the only one that did everything I wanted, effortlessly and clearly, for free. I went ahead and paid for the $3.99 "upgrade" (not sure it actually does anything except remove a splash screen, but I didn't try to compare file contents) because it was so well done and so useful.

Solid Choice

Searched high and low for an app with this kind of simple comparison functionality. Works well.
