Is there a way to compare two crystal report files to find the differences between the two?
I've got a pair of reports whose modified date varies by 30 min and I don't know what the difference is between the two.

You can export the report definition of any report (on the export dropdown) .
You could then use a file comparison utility to compare the files such as described for Word here:

That is the probably the cheapest way.

There are 3rd-party tools that claim to be able to do it.

The only other way would be to open both reports side by side and compare the properties section by section
