Compare Any File Type 

One of the big advantages of Beyond Compare over other similar packages on the market 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 customisable 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 colour-coded, making differences obvious.     

Easy Comparisons and Analysis

Ultimately, the true value of Beyond Compare is that it provides a means of analysing 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.
