Folder Compare Elements

After UltraCompare has completed comparison of the specified directories the results are presented in the main window.  The categories in which differences are specified are as follows:

 

File Name

The contents of the compare directories are arranged according to the names of the files in the directories that are being compared.  This should be a complete listing of the combined contents of both directories.

 

Status

The Status field identifies what differences have been found between the compared directories.  Possible values here are:

 

Identical: indicates that the contents of the file are exactly the same in both directories.

 

Same Time, Content Diff: indicates that the time stamp for both files is the same, but there are content differences between the compared files.

 

Source Newer: indicates that the directory specified on the left contains a newer copy of the file being compared.

 

Destination Newer: indicates that the directory specified on the right contains a newer copy of the file being compared.

 

Source Only: indicates that the file only exists in the directory on the left.

 

Destination Only: indicates that the file only exists in the directory on the right.

        

Src Date

The Src Date field shows the date and time stamp of the files in the directory specified on the left.

 

Src Size

The Src Size field shows the size in bytes of the files in the directory specified on the left.

 

Dest Date

The Dest Date field shows the date and time stamp of the files in the directory specified on the right.

 

Dest Size

The Dest Size field shows the size in bytes of the files in the directory specified on the right.

 

File Type

The File Type field indicates whether a file has been identified as being in Text or Binary format.  If a subdirectory is listed this field will label this as a  Directory rather than using one of the file types
