Compare favorably

Compare and sync files and folders with this easy-to-use program.

Any time you have multiple versions of a file--be it a presentation, source code, contract, novel, image, or other document--the potential for confusion arises. For a quick and easy way to compare files or folders, try SwiftCompare Light. This simple program allows users to easily identify different versions of files and sync the contents of folders. With many potential uses, this is a handy program to have around.

SwiftCompare Light has a plain but extremely intuitive interface. Users first choose whether they want to compare files or folders, and then navigate to the particular files or folders they want to compare, choosing one to be displayed on the left and the other on the right. In the case of folders, the program then displays the contents of each folder in separate panes, with a summary showing the folders and files that are newer, older, orphan, and different on each side. When comparing files, the program simply shows an alert message that says whether the files are the same or different. SwiftCompare Light also allows users to sync files, either from one folder to the other or between both folders. This is a great tool to have when you frequently transfer files from one computer to another, or from a mobile storage device to your computer. The program's built-in Help file is well-written and thorough. Overall, we think that SwiftCompare Light is a handy file management tool that could benefit anyone who frequently revises or moves files.

SwiftCompare Light is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues, and we recommend this program to everyone.
