    "Does what it says it will..."

    March 15, 2014  |   By Prochefort

    Version: Directory Compare 2.3

    Pros

    The software worked for me but the folders were not that big. Some people have complained that it fails when the folder is big. I like hte fact that it highlights what the difference is. (ie: same size but different date, different size but same date etc)

    Cons

    The full version is a bit expensive for what it does - 29$ just to compare folders seems like much. If it added a few other features, it might be an easier sell and be easier to justify the purchase.

    Summary

    All in all, a good software but a bit on the expensive side for me. I haven't fully tested it and I may change my mind about the expensive part if I find other stuff that it does that I find of value to me.

    "Could not handle large jobs"

    June 30, 2013  |   By achitea

    Version: Directory Compare 2.3

    Pros

    A nice utility for managing and filtering directories.

    Cons

    It could not handle a 60GB compare and move job.

    Summary

    I have a new external backup drive and wanted to compare and move files from the old backup drive to the new. The program works ok with the "average" size folders, but just goes away with a large job. Still looking for a solution.

    "Will not display MTP units"

    October 14, 2012  |   By Knutars

    Version: Directory Compare 2.3

    Pros

    Works with ordinary drives

    Cons

    Doesn't work with MTP units like a connected Samsung Galaxy Nexus

    Summary

    If you wabt to compare and sync files between your computer and an MTP drive, this product can't help you. Other than that, it's OK.

    "Fantastic Utility for File Comparison and Synchronizing"

    May 14, 2012  |   By jhkk

    Version: Directory Compare 2.3

    Pros

    Easy to use
    Fast and Efficient
    Wonderful for synchronizing directories on different hard drives (or on the same drive and cleaning up duplicates or older files.
    Just Works!

    Cons

    None that I know of.

    Summary

    I have been using this program for many years, almost as long as it has existed. It has improved steadily through time, and I believe it to be one of the best (if not the best) file comparison utilities available. It does everything Glenn Alcott says it will and it does it fast and efficiently. The only improvement that I can think of would be to be able to access both "left" and "right" directories at the same time when choosing directories to compare.

    I agree with the previous reviewer: "This is a must have utility."
