I'm looking for a tool to make comparison between files and folders. There is of course Beyond Compare, but it is not freeware. Is there anything else nearly as good as that? I found a tool called Meld (http://meldmerge.org/), but I'm not too happy about that. It is not so good, when you have to compare two folders, which include big amount of sub-folders and files.

Thanks

The trial version of beyond compare itself is powerful and is used in our organization.
If there is only file comparision, I also use eclipse for the same. It has a powerful file comparator.

Which OS? On Windows, WinMerge is handy. On OS X, FileMerge (comes with Apple's dev tools) is nice, and integrates with external tools like svnX.
