    juxtapose folders application can somewhat do that but it doesnt look into differences of folders within folders. and it keeps crashing when comparing large folders..

    any other app out there?

    thanks

    Just use terminal

    diff -r <folder1> <folder2>

    Diff is for comparing, -r does it recursively through sub-directories.
