Diff between files and directories

These are few suggestions:

- using diff on individual files when comparing directories vs. just size and timestamp of individual files.

- using diff to compare individual files;

- using external diff program to compare individual files;

I use WinSCP to keep a couple of remote software installations in sync and finding differences with minimum "false positives" would be extremelly helpfull.

See example custom command 'File Compare' to learn how to use external diff program with WinSCP.
