File Compare program - Compare 2 iso files

Just wondering if anyone knows of a file compare program that will compare two iso's

I need to know if they are identical.

Tried winmerge but it has a 2GB limit

Hi Mick,
I've been using an excellent file manager called Total Commander for many years:

It has a file compare function that can handle very large files. I don't know if it has a maximum file size, but I just used it to compare two copies of the W8Pro ISO, which is 2.9GB...worked fine:
compare W8Pro ISOIt took about 3 seconds to do the comparison. Regards, Joe

Glad to hear it worked for you. That 2.9GB W8Pro is the largest ISO I have, but I just tried the compare on a 4.23GB backup image file and it also worked fine on that. How big is your ISO that it worked on? Regards, Joe
