    Suggested Feature - Compare permissions

    Hi,
    I think beyond compare is a fantastic product, I have licenses at home and work and use it all the time. One thing that I think would be a great feature to add to folder compare (as an option, unselected by default) is to compare file and folder permissions when comparing folders.

    Beyond compare is fantastic for trouble shooting issues with software not working, especially now that Registry compare has been added and permissions are another really common reason for software getting broken.

    Cheers
    Andrew.

    As a workaround until BC supports comparison of permissions, you can use Microsoft's Icacls tool to dump permissions to a text file, then compare the text files in Beyond Compare's Text Compare.

    To dump permissions for a folder and all of its contents to a text file, use the command:

    icacls c:\folder1 /T > c:\folder1perms.txt

    Hey there,

    I have been a user of Beyond Compare for many years for QA purposes... I, too, am now in need of functionality that would allow for the comparison of security permissions. This would greatly assist to verify integrity of propagated folder permissions on newly installed files and folders.

    Please & thanks
    cheers,
