Folder compare says different, file compare says identical

Postby jonaskello » Thu Mar 17, 2011 7:42 am

I am using Edit->Options->Compare->Full contents.

Then I compare two directories containing C# source code files using both Filters and Line Filters.

Some files are reported "Text files are different" in folder compare. But when I right click and chosse compare they "Files are identical box appears" and there are no diffrences.

Am I doing something wrong? Missing an option?

I got the same issue when comparing .php files :-(
And you are right: the folder compare says they are different becaus of the file date. Yet Copy/paste in my case does not trigger the same date.
