Nightmare on File Comparison...

Being a developer, have you ever encountered the problem of making a major change in your files and suddenly the whole program or website was not working at all? If you have been making consistently making backups using a SVN or you have been consistently creating you own build for backups, you can always use the following software to do a file or folder comparison to easily identify or rollback your changes.

Although the above application only works on a Windows, it doesn't mean that there isn't similar softwares in a Mac or a Linux. For a Mac, there's always FileMerge and on a Linux, you can always try softwares like Meld.

Biggest similarity between the softwares mentioned in the above - all of them are FREE tools to install and try.
Yes, I am a Cheapo/Cheapskate...... :P
