I want to compare 2 directories to see where they differ. Essentially, see which files and/or directories are only in one place (if directory X is only in one, I don't need to see all the files within that directory reported as well). The nearest I can get is SYNC /S /E /N, but that reports file-by-file, even for directories that are completely missing. Using external tools, Gnu diff gets me partway there, diff -qr reports differences, but doesn't say which are files and which are directories. Is there a way of doing this that I've missed? It seems a simple enough thing that I need, but it's harder than I'd expect to find a good solution :-( Thanks, Paul.
