Beyond Compare allows you to quickly and easily compare your files and folders. By using simple, powerful commands you can focus on the differences you're interested in and ignore those you're not. You can then merge the changes, synchronize your files, and generate reports for your records. Beyond Compare's intuitive Folder Sync interface lets you reconcile differences in your data automatically.

Beyond Compare - Reconcile your Differences

Intelligent Comparison
Compare files and folders using simple, powerful commands that focus on the differences you're interested in and ignore those you're not.  Merge changes, synchronize files, and generate reports.

  • Compare Files, Folders
    • You can compare entire drives and folders at high speed, checking just sizes and modified times.  Or, thoroughly verify every file with byte-by-byte comparisons.  FTP sites, cloud storage, and zip files are integrated seamlessly, and powerful filters allow you to limit what you see to only what you're interested in.
    • Once you've found specific files you're interested in, Beyond Compare can intelligently pick the best way to compare and display them.  Text files can be viewed and edited with syntax highlighting and comparison rules tweaked specifically for documents, source code, and HTML.  The text contents of Microsoft Word .doc and Adobe .pdf files can also be compared but not edited.  Data files, executables, binary data, and images all have dedicated viewers as well, so you always have a clear view of the changes.
  • 3-way Merge (Pro Edition only)
    • Beyond Compare's merge view allows you to combine changes from two versions of a file or folder into a single output.  Its intelligent approach allows you to quickly accept most changes while carefully examining conflicts.  Color coding and section highlighting allow you to accept, reject, or combine changes, simply and easily.  When merging files you can change any line in the output with the built-in syntax-highlighting editor.  By using Beyond Compare's powerful file type support and ability to favor changes from one file, you can trivially accept many changes without even seeing them.
    • You can use Beyond Compare directly from most version control systems, giving you all of the powerful comparing and merging support you need when you need it most.  Integrated source control commands are also available, allowing you to check in and check out files without interrupting your work.
  • Synchronize Folders
    • Beyond Compare's intuitive Folder Sync interface lets you reconcile differences in your data automatically.  You can efficiently update your laptop, backup your computer, or manage your website, and Beyond Compare will handle all the details.  You can copy to and from disks, FTP servers, and zip files, all using the same interface.  Anything you don't want affected can be easily filtered out, and all of the powerful comparison techniques are available, making the backup as fast or robust as you need.
    • You can automate repetitive tasks using a flexible scripting language, and any script can be called from the command line, allowing you to schedule your syncs for when it's most convenient.

Access Data Anywhere
Directly access FTP sites, media devices, WebDAV resources, svn repositories and cloud storage. All from your Windows, macOS or Linux workstation.

  • Multi-platform - Beyond Compare is available wherever you are, on Windows, Linux, and now macOS.  Fast, with a native look and feel, and enhanced for each platform with the power to do everything you need it to.
  • Zip - Zip files and other archive types can be expanded in-place to compare and update their contents, as easily as any other folder.  It handles many popular formats, including tar, gzip, bzip2, Microsoft CAB, WinRAR, and, new to v4 for Windows, Zipx, 7-zip, and IMG/ISO disk images.
  • FTP, SFTP, FTPS (Secure connections are a Pro Edition feature.) - Update your website or make an offset backup; you don't need a separate FTP client.  Beyond Compare can connect to FTP, FTP over SSL, and SFTP (SSH) servers and compare, merge, or sync changes with the same commands you're used to.  It has saved profiles for quicker access and supports multiple simultaneous connections to speed everything up.
  • Media Devices - Plug in your camera, MP3 player, or Android phone and immediately access it, just like any other drive. Sync your music. Copy your photos. Save your high scores.
  • Subversion (Pro Edition only) - Compare your local Subversion working directory directly against a remote repository without creating a second checkout.  Multiple branches and past revisions are supported too, to make merging branches a snap.
  • Cloud Storage (Pro Edition only) - Organize your cloud storage, whether on a WebDAV server or Amazon S3.  Grab a few files from Dropbox when you don't have the full client installed.  Beyond Compare makes it easy no matter where your data is.

Specialized Viewers
Beyond Compare includes built-in comparison viewers for a variety of data types.  In addition to text, compare tables, images, binary files, registry hives, and much more.

  • Text Compare - This is a comparison of two source code files. Specific differences are marked with red text, and the entire line is given a light red background to indicate the presence of a difference. Gutter buttons and hotkeys let you quickly copy sections of code from one side to the other.
  • 3-way Text Merge (Pro Edition only) - This is a comparison of three files at the top and the merged, editable output at the bottom. The center file is the common ancestor of the two later versions. Left and right changes are automatically included in the output.
  • Table Compare - Delimited data files can be compared cell-by-cell in a Table Compare session. Data can be sorted and aligned on key fields, and unimportant columns can be ignored.
  • Picture Compare - The Picture Compare view shows images side-by-side with their differences highlighted. Various types of image files can be compared.
  • Folder Compare - Compare folders side-by-side in a familiar Explorer style. Differences are highlighted in color.
  • Folder Sync - A dedicated Folder Sync session is useful for synchronizing folders.The preview pane clearly shows the operations that will be performed.
  • 3-way Folder Merge (Pro Edition only) - Three-way merging now extends to folders. Compare independent changes against a common ancestor to quickly merge your changes with someone else's.  It makes merging your customizations into a new release a snap.
  • Hex Compare - The Hex Compare view shows differences byte-by-byte in a typical hex dump layout.
  • Registry Compare  (Windows Pro Edition only) - The Registry Compare view compares local and remote live registries as well as registry exports.
  • Executable Compare (Windows only) - The Version Compare view compares executable files (such as .exe and .dll) and shows differences in version information.
  • MP3 Compare - The MP3 Compare view compares mp3 files, showing differences in tags.
