WinDiff Review

Tina de Pierre
Compare differences between files and folders with highlighting
A review of WinDiff by Tina de Pierre

WinDiff is a small and lightweight freeware program which provides a quick and easy way to identify duplicate files and folders while highlighting the differences between the items.

The application is indeed a GUI front-end to the WinDiff tool which probably takes a lot of its functionality from the Linux program Diff.

The program is unfortunately not very user-friendly so it's mainly suited towards more advanced users. It also isn't too intuitive because there is no way to open a folder directly from WinDiff.

Even though it's not the easiest and most intuitive software to use, it can still be useful in certain occasions.

WinDiff is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from file organizer software without restrictions. WinDiff 5.1 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).

This file comparison software is filed under:
  • WinDiff Download
  • Freeware File Organizer Software
  • Free Software Download

Compatibility with this file comparison software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Mingkun Goh.
