I did exactly the above - F8 split - left navigate to d:\Mingw\DirA & * to log all files - tab to RH pane - navigate to d:\Mingw\DirB & * to log all files.
Tab back to left pane & Alt C & get Compare d:\Mingw\DirA with d:\Mingw\DirB
tag Identical No - all the others are No also - I want to see what files are different
All I get are the 6 files in DirA that do not exist in DirB - however:
There is 1 file in d:\Mingw\DirA\FolderA that is different to an identically named one in d:\Mingw\DirB\FolderA but it doesn't get tagged.

If I change the tag to Identical Dt&Sz then all the other files get tagged EXCEPT that one file - so maybe I should use that option - but it doesn't feel right.

Anyway - somewhat moot point since I've started using Winmerge.

Thanks anyway.
