I have a copy of a user folder that I have created using the Windows 2003 SBS shadow copy utility. I now need to compare this to the version sitting on the "live" network. Is there a freeware utility that will do this for me? there are a lot of files, and I really can't face going through them one by one!

Many thanks

Here are just a few choices that can compare files/folders.  I know a couple of them at least come with trial versions as well

I'd go with JimsZ's first recommendation:

"beyond compare" by http://www.scootersoftware.com/

been using it and recommending it for over 2 years now. But it would be preferable to buy it if you're doin this for your company since the download is a time-limited fully-functional trial.

A piece of software that EVERY IT person should have under their belt is Tree Size.  (I believe by jamsoft)  They have a freeware version & a full version. (if you buy the full version you get lifetime updates!)  It is a GREAT piece of software for looking at everything on the server.  It can narrow it down by certain criteria etc.
