I've just tried to use the folder compare feature to check that a list of CAB files we ship have remained the same between two releases.

If found that files that exist in one folder, but not the other were not picked up as missing.

I've been able to reproduce this by creating two new folders. Create a text file in one, then compare. The file is correctly shown as missing in the other folder. Rename the file to .CAB and compare again. Diffmerge says both folders are the same.

Is there something in configuration that I may have missed?

We have a feature that filters out files (such as .OBJ)
and sub-folders (such as Debug) that you generally don't
want DiffMerge to dive into (and waste time) when
comparing source directories.

.CAB is one of the file types being filtered.

Look at the "Folder Filters" page in the Options dialog.
Uncheck the 2 "Use ... Filters" check boxes.

(or remove 'cab' from the file suffix list)

hope this helps,
jeff

Thanks Jeff. Unchecked the filters and all works as I expected.

Great product.
