I have 2 external backup drives, and both have identical file names and folder structure.

What utilities are there to take these two root folders and make a bit by bit comparion of the files they contain?

For example, TextPad under "Tools" has a "Compare Files" option. I need something like this albeit more streamlined for 100's of files.

Did the external drives come with any backup software? If so, that may have verification. Are you using any software to keep those two drives' contents the same?
