Directory Compare

– No support for byte-by-byte comparison

– Insufficient folder synchronization functionality: the user can only copy missing/newer files to the destination directory. For instance, Directory Toolkit software allows the user to choose one of the following additional synchronization options: “refresh” files (update existing files only), remove orphans from target directory, remove duplicate files, or recreate directory structure (no files are copied).

– File comparison functionality is insufficient

Directory Compare has a clear and user friendly interface, and provides for basic folder synchronization functionality. However, advanced users may find this functionality insufficient for professional projects.

We recommend this software as an optimal tool for occasional synchronization tasks. Our rating for Directory Compare is 7/10.
