    I cannot figure out how to compare 2 folders in Beyond Compare and see what files/folders are missing from newer folder and to jump to next change. The older folder is backup of that same folder.

    1. Start up Beyond Compare and click Folder Compare

    2. Drag a folder from Finder to the left pane and the other folder to compare to the right pane.

    3. View your results (Click on the Diffs menu bar to only see the differences). Capto_Capture 2016-08-20_07-01-46_AM.png
