Using Beyond Compare to access server files

What is this software?

Beyond Compare is a desktop-based utility software that allows you to compare (as the name says) files & folders. But it goes "beyond" that, which makes it more useful than other file-comparison software.

What does it do?


  • synchronize folders [link]
  • compare files (text, code files, image, audio, even binary) [link]
  • merge files [link]

It's available for trial & commercial use under Windows and Linux systems. The trial copy is not bad at all since you get the features of the full version. When you hit the 30-day trial limit, it will still work -- but it does remind you to consider buying every time you start the software.

Ease of Use

After a very quick install, get ready to compare to your heart's desire.
