    Question BC4 Binary Compare --> Terminate file compare on single byte failure

    I'm inquiring if BC4 Binary Compare either CAN or DOES terminates the file compare on a single byte failure? If not is this something that can be implemented in the future?

    Why? Performing a compare on a 100GB plus file can be excessive and if there is even a single byte wrong then there's a problem and continuing is irrelevant as it needs to be backed up again.

    That's exactly how the Binary scan works: as soon as the difference is detected it stops. In contrast, the CRC scan must complete all the way (every time) in order to generate the CRC code to then compare; exposing the CRC column would also require a full scan to generate the code.
