Compare Any File Type

One of the big advantages of Beyond Compare over other similar alternatives on the market such as WinMerge is the compatibility it provides, with support for virtually any file type, including text files, data files, executable files, image files and ZIP files. The application supports system folders, FTP sites, and even cloud storage folders, and provides customizable options so that the results display the aspects that users are interested in. Although the interface will take some time to get to grips with, comparison displays are color-coded, making differences obvious.

Easy Comparisons and Analysis

Ultimately, the true value of Beyond Compare is that it provides a means of analyzing and comparing files, folders and directories without the need for an abundance of technical knowledge. While many file comparison applications place a strong emphasis on text comparisons, Beyond Compare is compatible with a huge number of file types and displays results in a way that can be easily interpreted and acted upon.

Beyond Compare is a powerful time-saving utility for comparing files and folders on your Windows system. Use it to manage source code, keep folders in sync, compare program output, and validate copies of your data.

Beyond Compare can create a snapshot of a live directory structure, and compare it against the live copy at a later date. The utility helps you analyze differences in detail and carefully reconcile them. It commands a wide range of file and text operations, as well as script commands for automating tasks.
