FileCompare compares two files and tells you if even one byte is different. If you are in Windows Explorer just select the file and right click and use the "Send To" and then select "File Compare" to send the file to FileCompare. It compares the files and pops up the information screen shown above. It does this without leaving Windows Explorer.
It also shows you all the information about each file. When the first file is selected the program sounds a beep and briefly flashes onscreen but does not appear. This is to let you know the first file was loaded. When the second file is loaded the program appears and shows the comparison. You can also select two files at once in Windows Explorer instead of selecting them individually.
You can also run FileCompare as a stand-alone program from the FileCompare desktop shortcut. In this mode you can compare two files as described above, or get all the information for just one file by selecting the top "File" menu item and then the "Open 1 File" menu item.
FileCompare can read the basic information such as size and date of any file type. If you click the "Get Extra Info" checkbox the program will display all of the unique extra information in the file header for that particular file type. It can read extra information for over 25 different file types.
This is a 32 bit program and will run on Windows ME, NT, 2000, and XP.
