Compare Folders is, as its name says, an application that enables you to compare folders within your Mac and find out which files are duplicates, unique or with similar characteristics.
When launching this program for the first time, a welcome window will appear where you will find out how to use this efficient tool; if you do not want to show this message next time you launch the program, uncheck the "Don't show again" box and click the "Close" button.

Its interface is simple and intuitive, as the main window is divided into three sections where you will find the duplicate, unique and similar files. All you will need to do in order to use this powerful program is to select the two files you wish to check, choose the proper task and search criteria (file type, size, date created/modified, locked or not) and wait for the results. In a few moments, you will get a complete list containing all found files and you can decide which measures to take with these files (delete, copy, rename, archive, inspect, etc.).

A relevant disadvantage of using this program is the fact that it only lets you compare two files at a time, not more.

Therefore, Compare Folders is a handy application that helps you find duplicate, unique and similar files by comparing folders within your Mac.
