I left a longer review on the Oro edition, but rest assured: As a user since '08, I still believe that DeltaWalker (in any flavor) is STILL the best comparison utility available on any platform.

I've been using this software since october of last year and before I thought I needed software like this. Now it has become indispensable and with version 2.0 even faster and more powerful then the previous version before. Had an issue that I emailed customer support about and they got back to me within a matter of minutes with a solution. Great software. Great support. I recommend it!

The only Mac 3-way diff tool I know of. Unfortunately an Eclipse-based Java app. That means an application size which is 220MB and a memory consumption which can easily go over 500MB of RAM with spikes to 1.2GB. And that's just for a comparison of a single small file while keeping the app open for some hours.

Great positive reviews, but very little info how this app will improve my developer/author life over open source tools like Mercurial combined with DiffMerge and similar. What do a purchaser actually get for the $464 asked? When do you need DeltaWalker rather than other available tools?

Just marked my fourth year as a dedicated user of DeltaWalker, and it just keeps getting better. The developers are top-notch and quick to respond on the off chance you have a problem or suggestion. I definitely consider this a "must have" in my development toolbox now.

I have been using the software to gain evidence in court and I must say it is the best by far. Last version improved a lot the reports feature so now they are lightning fast. I would reommend it to everybody. Ricard Castellet

I am very pleased with DeltaWalker. I have been using the Oro version since Feb 2012. I have a MacBookPro running Lion 10.7.5, and a dual boot HP 8710w laptop running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and CentOS 6 Linux. My primary use is for software engineering - primarily CAD/CAE software and managing/synchronizing source code and engineering data across platforms and across software versions. Until I purchased my MacBook in 2011, my experience with file comparison utilities on Windows was exclusively using BeyondCompare - a product which truly lived up to its name. Alas, BeyondCompare is a Windows only product. DeltaWalker (Oro) provides most/all of the capabilities of BeyondCompare but adds support across the three platforms on which I work. All my questions to date have been handled promptly.

It seems that 1.9.8 version has trouble with "Follow symbolic links" option. I've got a few symlinks to folders (not Mac aliases though!) and these are always treated as folders (and so all the children tree is compared) regardless of the setting. BTW. I would love to see hex-binary comparison window as an option of file comparison.

Excellent app. I contacted their support with a specific request, probably somewhat unique. Although their Oro (Gold) version would have done the job easier (I only have the Standard license), support walked me through a way to do what I needed. Great job!

I've been using DeltaWalker for at least three years now, and have yet to find another Diff/Merge tool that approaches the power and ease of use of this app on OS X. Indispensable for developers who find themselves needing to refer back to earlier versions of files, etc. When combined with a good version-control system (command line Git or the capable CornerStone subversion client, for instance), it makes managing changes a breeze.

I've searched for a truly SMART duplicate finder for quite some time that would be able to discern from duplicate names as well as find duplicate file content with different file names. Searching the web, the Mac App Store and anywhere I could look... I found Deltopia's DeltaWalker and was totally beside myself at how AWESOME DeltaWalker works! I haven't been able to find a comparable duplicate file and folder finder, manger, merger, organizer... It's so much more than a duplicate comparison utility. The visual layout of the results are truly, very, very clear and well-defined, in a way that makes decisions to resolve the differences very easy. I love DeltaWalker. There's nothing quite like it around for the price and features. The ability to just step-up to DeltaWalker Oro is one you would not regret. 3-way comparisons allows an amazing way to resolve multiple location duplicate and/or modified files. For resolving duplicates in multiple locations, consolidating files, reorganizing my files, DeltaWalker is the most important utility I have installed on my Mac!

I like this product, and recommended it to some of my coworkers. One of the features I was excited to see was comparison of local directories and remote directories. That's a cool thing, as we have a server that has a config directory with lots of files and folders in it, with only a few changes needed for any particular release. Replacing the entire config directory is not practical. DeltaWalker will not connect to the remote server using SFTP, a Solaris box. I can connect to that server with standard ssh connections, and any of several FTP/SFTP tools I have. I did raise this issue with Deltopia, and they were quick to respond and eager to help. They wanted to test with our server. I could not give them access to our internal server, for various reasons. The problem was never resolved because I did not, and still do not, have time to chase it down. So, it's a nice product, but one of the key reasons for my use does not work.

I was just about to buy this, and then I thought I would check to see if it would compare, say, a .docx against an iWork Pages file... It appears that DeltaWalker doesn't support Apple's Pages at all. Nowhere does the documentation address this, nor can I even find it DeltaWalker can compare two files of different formats. Anyone know?

Great soft. Very responsive support from developer. That last version is the fast and stable one i was waiting for. I use it mainly to maintain synchronized my own files created on 2 different startup partitions. Deltawalker is more easy to use and faster than Tri-Backup i am [was] also using. More features like "users templates" for specific folders and/or files synchronization would be nice. Something like MacOS X intelligent folders.
