    windows 7: How to compare two folders

    I have recently upgraded the system with windows 7 64 bit operating system. Previously I was using windows XP which was really working nicely. I have found some trouble in windows 7 that I have two folders which has various records. I would like on the way to contrast both folders and observe which file has more records and what are their names? How do I perform that in Windows 7 64bit I was able to do this in windows XP? Is there any service that I am able to download? Please help me.

    You used to maintain multiple versions of a file, some more and some less-date, stored in different folders on your PC and now want to find out what are the differences between two files residing in folders that have similar content. How to do without losing valuable time to comb through the files manually one by one? Simply use the Game Maker Update. It is a handy free program with which you can compare two folders on Windows in a few clicks, find out what files are different from each other in a flash. Use it and the files found in two different folders will be automatically saved in a third folder of your choice. I hope this will be helpful to you to get the desired solution.

    WinMerge is Open Source software that allows distinguishing between two files and merging them. It is especially handy to see what was changed between two versions of a project (e.g. development), then update the old version of the file after verifying what was added or removed in the new version. The software allows WinMerge to compare files but also directories. We quickly see the difference between the elements being compared, it is a tool that can be useful if you often manipulate text files, and it's free. I would like to suggest you to use this tool.

    Compare files are in two different folders can be very useful for many things, some of which are: to determine whether the information has been changed without your consent or to buy some support with information from a computer has been infected by viruses Or for programmers who need to see changes in the source code of a program or script, and many utilities to make these comparisons quickly we have an excellent application for Windows called TreeCompare. This is free and portable software which means no installation, which compares all the files in two folders or drives, this comparison, also scans files that are in subfolders.
