Life gets so very complicated when you're working over a network. You work on files on your hard drive, but you also work on files on the network, and it's very likely that you're working on projects, like web development or software versioning, that compel you to make changes to files, then overwrite their remote counterparts. But what if you mess up and overwrite newer files with old information? What do you do, besides clock out early and hope no one notices your mistake?

DeltaWalker acts as your safety parachute, allowing you to visually compare files and folders in two different locations before intelligently synchronizing them. Using DeltaWalker, you'll be able to compare, edit, merge, and synchronize different versions of source files with ease and reassurance. And, if you're working as part of a team, you'll love DeltaWalker's ability to compare your changes and those of another team member with a common ancestor, automatically merging all non-conflicting differences in seconds. No more guesswork!

No matter what your industry, DeltaWalker can help. The program works with HTML and XML files, can compare compressed archive files such as JAR, EAR, ZIP, and cuts through documents and text output files like a hot knife through butter. DeltaWalker can also compare PDF and Microsoft Office (DOC, XLS, PPT) files!

All of DeltaWalker's file and folder comparisons can be printed to hardcopy for later review, or as HTML and XML files with links to individual file comparison reports!

Please note: today's discount applies to either the Windows, Mac, or Linux version of DeltaWalker. Many mac folks consider this to be the best diff tool for their platform :-)

Merle One Hi,

Is a license ok for a non concurrent use on a PC and a Mac ?

Sep 6 2011 at 1:53pm Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov Hi Merle One,

A DeltaWalker Oro license would allow for that, yes. Alternatively, one would need two DeltaWalker Standard licenses - one for OS X and one for Windows. Either way one can use DeltaWalker 'concurrently'.

Deltopia - Sep 6 2011 at 3:08pm Copy Link
Merle One Thanks. Is the Oro license also part of the BDJ deal ? Thanks.
Sep 6 2011 at 11:54pm Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov Yes, the BDJ special applies to DeltaWalker Standard and Oro, both Personal and Commercial.

Merle One Hi, I just sent from a form on deltopia website a question related to file selection....
Sep 7 2011 at 12:28am Copy Link
SoftCollector I have tried the program and it functions without a glitch. Here is what I have found out:

1. Great visual interface. Every little thing has been thought of in great detail. Even the help file text incorporates small icons that make it visually pleasing.
2. I own ViceVersa Pro and Compare It! licenses and I believe those to be two of the finest folder / file comparison tools on the market today. While ViceVersa Pro is, in my opinion, the premium back up tool on the market (for its versatility and configurability), DeltaWalker performs superbly as a visual comparison tool and its three way comparison and merging feature (present in the Oro version) is one-of-a-kind to the best of my knowledge.
3. DeltaWalker handles Unicode just great (a problem with some comparison tools) - which is essential in my line of work. It does so right off the bat with no need of further configuration.
4. The export feature (also present in Compare It!) works as advertised and is irreplaceable when you need to have the results of the comparison in the form of an HTML file for example.

None so far.

1. CompareIt! opens with a dual file adding wizard when started (which could be switched on and off as a feature). It would be nice to have this included in a future version of DeltaWalker.
2. I would make some of the icons bigger, or give the user the option to make them bigger, if he wished so. More specifically - the icons to open files/folders for comparison.

Again, Yolian, great work. I was under the impression that I knew and owned the best folder / file comparison tools on the market, but DeltaWalker proved me wrong. What a nice surprise!

I would recommend DeltaWalker to all who need a well-engineered and superbly performing tool to compare files and folders. And the BitsDujour offer makes it quite affordable!
Sep 7 2011 at 12:37am Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov SoftCollector - thank you for the kind words!

Thank you for the feature suggestions as well - we'll take them to heart! About larger icons - we've already done that for the Mac OS X (Cocoa) version of DeltaWalker - we'll be offering those on Windows soon as well.

Sep 7 2011 at 1:55am Copy Link
Avi S Hello Yolian,
I have a few questions:
1] Is there an option to pause a sync? That is - if one is performing a sync across thousands of files, and then one wants to take a break to do something on the same computer without the CPU load of the sync, can one pause it in the middle, and resume later? (Similar to the way SuperCopier2 lets one pause a massive copy operation).
2] While performing a large sync operation over many files, is there a navigable window displaying the list of files that are involved in the operation, noting which ones have been copied and which ones are yet to be copied?
3] Is there an option for one-button operation? (That is, if I want to sync hundreds of thousands of files between two drives, I don't want to have to first wait for a lengthy comparison and then answer dialog boxes about whether to overwrite, whether to continue if there isn't enough room on the drive, etc.; rather, I'd like to be able to set all of these parameters in advance, so that I can click "compare & sync" at the end of a day and know that DeltaWalker will do its job to the end. Similarly, if files are in use or otherwise locked, I'd like to know that the program will simply skip over them, logging the information, rather than stopping the operation and waiting for input).

All of these three issues are problematic in Beyond Compare (although #3 can be solved there with a script). Thus, I'd be pleased to hear if DeltaWalked has addressed these issues.

Frank Stephens SoftCollector, and have been around for years. KDiff3 just had an update, but I haven't seen any activity on WinMerge (which I like better) since the end of 2010. One advantage of commercial software like DeltaWalker is that you have ongoing development (of course, that's not the case for some BDJ offerings). There can be many differences among file comparison apps, DeltaWalker has some interesting features according to the website.

Yolian Ignatov Frank, as with many apps, and other things in life, there are free versions and there are paid ones. More often than not the paid ones offer better feature set, performance, quality and, as you point out - ongoing development... one should really compare them with their requirements in mind.

Roberto some days ago i started a discussion about merge/diff tools in the forum. Maybe any of you want to discuss there too.
Sep 7 2011 at 7:59am Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov lisba, the number 32 in the current DeltaWalker installer name indeed refers to the fact that this is a 32-bit version of the software, which in your case would be used on a 64-bit OS. There's nothing wrong with that - many of the apps you might be running are 32-bit, including MS Office. MS introduced a 64-bit version of their Office suite just recently, after the Office 2010 official release.
In practical terms, 64-bit apps running on 64-bit OS-s can work with larger chunks of memory - larger than 2GB in this case.
We are about a couple months away from releasing 64-bit versions of DeltaWalker for Windows and Mac OS X, there's already a 64-bit version for Linux.
Deltopia - Sep 7 2011 at 8:04am Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov Hi Avi,

the questions are good! The answer to most of them, however is no; the reason - for the past 6-7 years you are there's been only a handful of people interested in such features. The feature set of commercial software, like so may other things, is driven by users' demand and until these get requested more often, it'd be difficult to justify investing in them instead of other features.
That said, a couple minor notes:
1] Is there an option to pause a sync?
A: Compare and Sync operations in DeltaWalker run on a thread with normal priority, which is to say that they shouldn't take away processing cycles indiscriminately. Modern processors do a pretty good job multitasking apps that are written to take advantage of their capabilities.
3] Is there an option for one-button operation?..
A: It's not a one-click operation just yet, but a fairly straightforward one nevertheless. We are working on introducing a comprehensive scripting interface which should allow you to put together a simple script to do the above. Running such script can be triggered via a single click or on a timer.
Deltopia - Sep 7 2011 at 8:25am Copy Link
Toyzrme For XML, does it attempt to match up elements? Ie if I changed an XML file, but just re-ordered the entities, would it consider it the same? (like does it compare the DOM tree, instead of just doing a text compare?)

Sep 7 2011 at 8:27am Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov ARTYONE, the image comparison module should be available for preview within a week or so. Please drop us a line at and let us know if you'd like to take it for a spin. It supports large number of file formats incl. photoshop, it's very fast and offers two- as well as three-way comparison.
Deltopia - Sep 7 2011 at 8:29am Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov Toyzrme, there are two 'views' when comparing XML files:
- A Text comparison view where they are compared as text exactly as the files are laid out on disk. In that mode any differences in the order of the entries will be flagged as such.
- A Structure comparison view where DW sees/shows the XML the exact same way as the XML DOM would see it i.e. attributes are ordered identically, text formatting is ignored, etc.
Deltopia - Sep 7 2011 at 8:39am Copy Link
Rolf Backman Avi-Thank you!
Sep 7 2011 at 8:54am Copy Link
Avi S Hi Yolian,
I'm glad you are adding the scripting interface.
Regarding the pause button - I'll try the program out tonight to see what its performance is like, but in my experience, any time there is massive and extended copy operation in progress, performance goes way down, especially when it comes to programs that need to access that drive. (To be sure, as you've noted, the system does dole out CPU time reasonably to each thread, the extended file operations end up causing other programs to block often, losing their time slice, and massively slowing down effective performance, even if the CPU usage remains low).
In any case, though - correct me if I am wrong - the pause button is really not such a big deal in terms of programming time - it is certainly not a feature that requires months of development like a scripting interface. We're just talking about a single button that would set a flag, and then single check for the flag in between each file copy. So, I'm wondering whether you would consider putting it in, even if you've only had a "handful of people", as you've said, who have asked for it directly.
As you've noted, in commercial development one must consider how important any given feature is based on demand; however, I believe the complexity of the feature should also be a major factor. If only a handful of people ask for a massively complex feature, obviously it is not justified. But if a handful of people all ask for a *simple* feature -- and, certainly for every "handful of people" that ask for it, there are many more who would find it useful -- then it is indeed reasonable to implement such a feature! And, indeed, it would comprise another advantage that separates DeltaWalker above BeyondCompare.
So, please let us know whether you would be willing to implement a "pause" feature.

Mike B Unfortunately, I don't have time to do a in-depth eval - can anyone point out what specific things might interest me if I'm someone who already has BC3?
Sep 7 2011 at 9:23am Copy Link
Helge P Is this comparable to BeyondCompare?

I have used this extensively on Win to sync several folders (photos, music, etc.) from my local box to a remote box via SFTP/SCP. According to the feature list, DW can do this, too - will this be of use to me when I won't do any text comparisons, only file/folder synching?
Sep 7 2011 at 10:19am Copy Link
Avi S I just tried DW's XML Structured Comparison mode. Here are my impressions:
1] Overall, extremely useful, and beautifully done. It provides a tree-based comparison of the data, field by field. The two XML files can be dragged-and-dropped together into the interface to initiate the comparison, and then clicking the "structured" tab at the bottom presents the XML comparison.
2] The structured view only seems to work if the files actually have .xml extensions. I have many XML files with alternate extensions, but bringing these into DW didn't bring about a structure comparison option. Even if we don't expect DW to recognize XML automatically, I believe that it should at least provide an option to force an XML structure comparison for files that happen to have other extension.
3] The xml attributes are sorted alphabetically in the structured comparison. In general this may make sense; however, this is not always true. For instance, in my case, it is the "name" attribute that is most important, and in my XML nodes this is always the first attribute. However, in the DW view, this attribute is pushed all the way towards the bottom, and making it inconvenient to efficiently review the XML nodes in my files. There should be an option to display the attributes in the order they appear (at least, according to one or the other of the files).
Note also that the alphabetization algorithm puts all lowercase beneath all uppercase; I couldn't find any way to change this in the interface, although presumably it should be there somewhere.
4] One issue with the lining-up of the XML items is that the way given XML nodes are identified with each other is simply by order. Instead, I believe it would make sense to allow an option for the user to designate one or more attribute as "key fields", whereby identical key fields would cause nodes to line up with each other. For instance, in my case, the "name" attribute would be the key field, and any XML nodes that have this same attribute would be lined up; otherwise, they would be separated. In this case, I would also suggest that the key field(s) be listed in bold on the main XML node line, rather than simply being lost among the various XML attributes, to allow for efficient overviews of the files.

Yolian Ignatov Avi, again, your comments are spot on!

We have a ticket to improve on the content-based file type detection, including that of XML files, so that should be done soon.
Your other comments are also very insightful and we'll give them the due attention as well.

VLM Yolian (or anyone else :), what advantages does DeltaWalker offer over GoodSync? I can see that the e-way comparison would be helpful in some circumstances. OTOH, GoodSync allows me to view the content of any file by opening in its native application, removing any constraints related to what file types are supported.

I have used GoodSync for years and am very happy with it. Still, I am always open to change!

Avi S @SoftCollector - thanks for your review. You noted DW's stellar handling of unicode files. However, where I'm having trouble is with the encoding of non-English high-ASCII characters in ASCII files. If I load up two such files for comparison, I can right-click on each window (individually), choose "set encoding", and set my code page manually. However, I have not found any way to set defaults for this encoding, and resetting the encoding for each file comparison is certainly not practical.
(In the preferences there is a place to set default encoding for "new text files"; I'm not sure what this affects, but in any case it doesn't seem to affect the files that I'm working with [I'm comparing .html files that include high-ASCII chars]. In contrast, Beyond Compare does have an option to set default ASCII encodings for any given file extension).
So, Yolian: (1) Is there any way to set the default encoding within the interface? (2) Even if not, at least the default encoding should match whatever the user has set for non-unicode program in the Regional Settings of the Control Panel.
Sep 8 2011 at 5:11am Copy Link
Tazzie I bought DeltaWalker at the last BDJ offering, and really like it. I don't have Beyond Compare, and have not used DW enough to really compare it with other diff programs. I'm just now getting into learning just what I can do with the programs ... they have different strengths and weaknesses, so which program I use sometimes depends on what I want to do.
@ Yolian ... Kudos for putting in the options to change fonts and colors. It is frustrating for those of us with special vision needs to try to use programs that are not customizable, and I am more likely to buy and use those that provide that functionality. Also, being able to enlarge icons is a plus, as is the ability to customize the UI. There are many of us who have a difficulty with certain background colors, especially bright white, and it is such a relief to be able to adjust the background of a program that I use, esp for long periods of time.

Yolian Ignatov The Presiding Emissary for Vibrant Living Ministries and Successors - love the user name already :) ...

GoodSync (GS) is a good program. With no claims for profound knowledge of its workings, my impressions after having played with it for a bit are:

Both apps have similar functionality when it comes to folder synchronization.
- GS offers even bigger support of remote servers/protocols e.g. Amazon Cloud, Windows Azure. It also allows for setting up automatic sync-s.
- DW offers greater criteria variety of comparison algorithms incl. content/byte-by-byte comparison - the only 100% reliable way of ensuring that two files are the same/different. It also offers a finer level/variety of synchronization operations.

Perhaps the biggest difference b/n the two is in DW's ability to detect and show the exact differences b/n files - all flavours of text files, Office files, compressed files... This allows for more selective/intelligent/confident sync - a newer copy of a file for instance may not be the one you want to keep - by letting you view the exact differences b/n these files down to individual characters, as well as to edit and merge the files on the spot. If you work with plain text files or any of the other document formats supported by DW, you are likely to find that ability essential. For file types that DW doesn't support, it allows you to open them in their default app similarly to GS; DW also allows you to select a different app to open these files in if you'd like. With the image comparison modules just weeks away, you'd also be able to open and compare images using different criteria with a single click of a button inside DW.

There's also three-way file and folder comparison and syncrhonization - and advanced feature mostly useful for software/web developers.
Without a doubt, there are other finer differences; should anyone find them important, please feel free to chime in.
Deltopia - Sep 8 2011 at 10:23am Copy Link
Avi S More about the multilanguage support (@SoftCollector). And here we have a significant advantage of DW over BC:
With right-to-left text in MS Word files, I find that BC displays the words left to right, while DW properly displays the words from right to left, in the proper order.
(Yolian - it would be even better if DW would also right-align the text, with the numbers on the right side, for right-to-left paragraphs - that would be much more convenient for right-to-left text comparisons. Still, even as it is, DW provides a very usable interface for dealing with RTL text).
Sep 8 2011 at 10:36am Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov Avi S, there's no bullet proof way of auto-detecting the encoding of a file:

That said, we should and we will offer ability to apply certain encoding for certain file types, essentially allowing the user to override DW's encoding auto-detection. We currently allow that for the case where the user creates a *new* file inside DW; if left intact the default encoding for such files is the one from Regional Settings of the Control Panel.
Thank you!
Deltopia - Sep 8 2011 at 10:39am Copy Link
Avi S Hi Yolian,
Thanks for the links to the excellent posts on text file encodings. I'd like to stress, though, that the ambiguities discussed in these posts are not necessarily relevant to the issue at hand. Those posts discuss the identification of ASCII vs. UTF-8 vs. UTF-16.
However, the issue that I've raised regards files that are already and correctly determined to be ASCII - the question then is, how should the upper 128 characters of the 8-bit character set be treated? This is a matter of code page selection. Regarding this there is virtually nothing that can be done to determine the code page automatically (short of an artificial-intelligence-based analysis of the lettter frequencies and combinations with respect the standard dictionaries of the potential target languages).
Thus, I believe that once the file is determined to be ANSI (rather than UTF-8 or UTF-16), then the default should be to use the non-unicode default language set in Regional Settings. This would certainly seem more reasonable than just assuming a standard 8859-1 encoding. And, indeed, this is what that non-unicode language setting is there for - to deal with this very case, when handling ASCII files in which there is no indication of the code page in use.

Yolian Ignatov Avi, I completely agree. We'll make the necessary adjustments. Thanks!
Deltopia - Sep 8 2011 at 11:46am Copy Link
VLM Yolian, THANK YOU for making time to provide that excellent comparison between DW and GoodSync. You have highlighted DW's strengths in a way that respect GS, as well. Nicely done!

I have one follow-up question: Given the byte-by-byte comparison capability of DW, can it be used effectively as a duplicate file remover? (like NoClone or the like)
Sep 8 2011 at 11:55am Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov A duplicate file remover... we'll have more to say on that in the first half of next year :) but for now I could say that while byte-by-byte comparison would be a key comparison algorithm for detecting duplicates with certainty, a duplicate file finder has a slightly different focus.
Specifically, given two folder hierarchies it looks for identical files ANYWHERE within these hierarchies and once it finds two or more files to be identical, it presents them in a suitable way, usually a list, as opposed to the tree-like representation in DW.

DW and other similar diff tools can detect duplicates only if they are in matching folders; thus they can only detect them in pairs i.e. if two hierarchies have multiple identical files, in the general case they will not be detected; at most they'll be detected in pairs.

Merle One Hi,
I am missing one feature in folder compare : when I right click on a file, say desktop.ini, at the root of the first folder, I can either exclude all desktop.ini, all .ini, but not that specific desktop.ini

Is there a way to do this ? Thanks.
Sep 9 2011 at 2:39am Copy Link
Yolian Ignatov Yes, the way to exclude a specific file is to specify its path as a folder comparison Name filter (File Comparison Properties Folder Comparison Filters) e.g. say your desktop.ini is located as such:


If you create a Name Exclude filter


only the desktop.ini file at that location will be excluded (assuming there is no test\desktop.ini in other locations).

Please contact us at if further clarification is necessary.
