  • Newer vs Different

    I am using the product after I install printer drivers to see if any files are updated.
    When a printer driver is installed, there are several files that get overwritten with the same file and as such updates the date/time stamp to make it newer but not different.
    The problem I have is that even when a file gets updated with a newer and different version, it just shows up color coded as newer.
    I need to be able to distinguish a different file and I not sure what to do.
    Any ideas would be helpful.

    To detect this you'll have to turn on content comparisons in the "Comparison Control" dialog. I'd suggest using binary comparisons. It will be slower, but it's the only way to definitely tell if the files are the same.
