byte-by-byte comparison

As a part of our companies Windows 7 roll out we use SCCM's mechanism to replicate files to local distribution points (DP).  In this process some of the files replicated to the DP's become corrupt.  The strange thing is that if we compare destination with source file regarding size and date, everything looks fine, but a byte-by-byte comparison reveals differences between source and destination.

So I'm looking for a program that can do a byte-by-byte comparison on huge amounts of files and folders.  I have tried "Beyond Compare", but it seems a little bit on the "light side". Anyone who knows of a good program for this?

You can try the comp command.  Something like this:
C:\> @for /R /D %d in (C:\myfolder\*.*) do echo N|comp %d D:%~pnd >>comp-results.txt

Open in new window


I hope this helps.

After adding " before and after source and destination parameters to "comp" it works like a charm – thank you ¿  (To take into account filenames with space)

C:\> @for /R /D %d in (C:\myfolder\*.*) do echo N|comp "%d" "H:%~pnd" >>comp-results.txt
