Check Identical Files v.2.10

By ABC-View.

Shareware 06 Feb 2002


This utility checks your hard drives for annoying duplicate files and provides an easy means to delete them, saving you megabytes of precious disk space.

You can add multiple folders and subfolders for scanning and retrieve file information by mouse-over. Select identical files manually, by directory, or by pattern. It is automatically set up to leave at least one original and you can edit the list of files before actually deleting them.

This can permanently delete files, send them to the recycle bin, or send them to an archive folder.

This utility should be used with caution, but is very useful for people who have a huge number of files.

Compare Advance v.1.4.1

By Bauer Software Designs.

Shareware 11 Sep 2013


Compare Advance is a very easy to use folder compare, synchronize and backup utility.

Compare any two folders from the local hard drive, removable media (CD, DVD's) or over the network, and easily see the differences between them. Unique views, folder coloring, summary node and highlighting features make picking up all the differences quick and easy. Then copy or delete files as necessary to resolve the differences.

Synchronize files between your desktop and laptop computers. First compare the desired folders from each computer and then resolve the differences with the advanced synchronization dialog, which makes it easy to see what each action will involve.

Backup your important files and folders to the destination of your choice, uncompressed or as a zip archive file. A detailed log report records which files have been copied, from where to where, and notifies you if any errors have occured.

Compare Advance introduces a new feature called "Archive Folder Filtering", which in some cases can save you many megabytes of space. So you don't need to backup folders which are simply extracted archive files.

DLSuperC v.7.3

By SuperC Inc..

Shareware 23 Jan 2005


DLSuperC is a different and exceptional compare program. It (DLSupC32.exe) features speed, accuracy (doesnt get lost) and versatility. Handling very large file sizes -- greater than 64K lines and a large number of filters for overlooking changes that are important in searching for significant changes. DLSuperC is different because:
  • It detects line changes based on data content alone. The user can, electively, ignore in the comparison:
    • A large number of defined script language type comments
    • Program language definitions like C++, Pascal, and Assembler
    • User defined comment token definitions
    • Upper and lower text case changes
    • Reformatted lines (blanks differences in position and number)
    • Embedded binary data such as zeros and EOL char
  • DLSuperC can detect matching lines that have moved out of programming sequence or, alternately, compare lists from two files for inserts, deletes, or duplicate lines.
  • Many more...

DLSuperCBF v.3.2

By SuperC Inc..

Shareware 23 Jan 2005


DLSupCBF is a separate program within the trio of DLSuperC compare programs - DLSuperC, DLSupCX and DLSupCBF. DLSupCBF is quite similar to DLSupCX (which handles both binary and text files) as it compares full directories while DLSuperC only compares two text files between directories. DLSupCBF is a directory-inspecting program that compares files as binary data even if the data is ASCII text. This binary granularity, binary files are compared as being the same or different with no determination within the file where they differ, allows the program to operate at a high level of efficiency.

DLSuperCX v.1.8

By SuperC Inc..

Shareware 23 Jan 2005


DLSupCX handles comparing two entire directories or file pairs with one invocation. This enhances the capability of DLSuperC, which required multiple user interactions/jobs to do the same task. Also, one generalized Don't Process Option (Dp) has been added to allow the user to define a single line leading comment character with an optional embedded to end-of-line comment delimiter (ex. "# This is a comment line." Or "Line 1 #Embedded Comment delimiter to end-of-line"). The requirements for comment filtering is a strong feature of DLSuperC. This added feature makes that capability more useful when comment delimiters are other than the supported types in a pre-configured list.

HexCmp v.2.34.2

By Fairdell Software.

Shareware 22 Sep 2013


HexCmp combines together the features of a binary file comparison application and a convenient hex editor. The program will help you to compare files in binary format, at the same time serving as a hex editor that will edit and modify your files. Comparison is made on-the-fly, while scrolling down the files. Enhanced with features like color highlighting; synchronous scrolling; an Info panel, which shows the file information in different formats and more, this program will most definitely become an asset for both home users and companies.

Instead of the full files comparison, upon loading you can compare just the current parts of the files, displayed on the screen, which saves you your working time. HexCmp supports files up to 4 GB. You can navigate among different blocks or files, choose the required parts of files to compare (just scroll down the file), set your own color scheme, use the Undo, Redo and Search functions. Besides the hex format, the program can also compare files in text format. String searching can be done in both formats as well. All commands are conveniently assigned to hotkeys. You can work with HexCmp, using your keyboard only.
