Is there any equivalent to the UNIX
diff -r dir1 dir2
in WindowsNT?
I need to compare 2 directory TREEs file by file incl. CONTENTS (not just dates/size/name).
E.g. compare a just burned CD with its original location.

MS has a utility named 'WinDiff' which is able to perform this task. Download it from http://mspress.microsoft.com/reslink/nt40/toolbox/default.asp?filechosen=tools/windiff.htm
