Discover the difference between folder contents with WinDiff

The Resource Kit contains a utility called WinDiff that allows you to quickly compare the contents of two folders. After you've installed the Resource Kit (see the above tip), to use WinDiff:

  1. From the Start menu, point to Programs, then point to Windows 98 Resource Kit, and then click Tools Management Console.
  2. Go to the \Tools A to Z\U to Z directory and double-click WinDiff.
  3. From the File menu, click Compare Directories and type the path of the folders you want to compare.
  4. Click OK and WinDiff will give you a line-by-line list of the differences between the contents of the folders.
