How do I compare contents of folder, files?

Is there a way to natively compare files and folders for content, perhaps in command prompt? If not, is there a good program for that?

"Natively, you can use the comp or the fc commands.

"I recommend Beyond Compare.

It can compare directories against each other, regardless whether the directory is local or FTP.
It can sync those directories, including subdirectories, with custom include/exclude file patterns.
It can compare files against each other. There are free plugins for Office documents, images, you name it.

I know the question has long been answered, but thought this might still be helpful for later readers."
