Folder Comparison Reports
DeltaWalker offers three types of folder comparison reports: HTML, Snapshot, and Patch.
HTML Comparison Reports
To create a comparison report, open/run that comparison go to
A folder comparison HTML report shares similarities with a text comparison HTML report in that it:
- Includes the most important preferences used to produce the folder comparison.
- Is great for sharing, storing, and tracking the change history of a particular folder pair/triplet.
- Can be two-way and three-way (Pro & Oro edition) depending on the folder comparison it represents.
Folder comparison reports can contain links to individual file comparison reports of files that are a part of the folder comparison.
A comparison snapshot is a JSON structure holding the name and the attributes of one of more resources for every node in the selected folder comparison, together with all preferences governing that comparion. Select a single role/hierarchy if you want to compare it later against the 'live' file system hierarchy. Select all roles/hierarchies if you want to capture the entire folder comparison for archive, audit or other purposes.
Use caution when executing this command as invoking it for large folders containing many pairs of different files may take a while.
