Welcome to Beyond Compare 4

Beyond Compare is a utility for comparing files and folders.  It can help you find and reconcile differences in source code, folders, images and data, even if your files are contained in zip archive files or on remote services (e.g. FTP sites).  It can synchronize your folders, and validate your copies.

Beyond Compare seamlessly coordinates the entire comparison job, from the folder structure down to individual differences in files.  Specialized file views communicate difference info back to the folder session, helping you quickly concentrate on important differences.  Beyond Compare remembers your various sessions so that you can come back to the same comparison job time after time.
