  • Out of Memory

    I am trying to find the differences between 2 folder structures but there are 41,000 folders in the parent and eventually, BC is running out of memory. Is there a way to increase/remove this cap or even a different functionality I am missing?

    Beyond Compare 3 for Windows is a 32-bit application. It will run out of memory when the total number of files being compared reaches 2.5 million files on each side on 32-bit Windows, or 5 million files on 64-bit Windows.

    Beyond Compare 4 is a 64-bit application on 64-bit Windows so upgrading to version 4 is the best way to handle large comparisons. If you can only use version 3, then you'll need to split the comparison up into smaller pieces.
