Still a huge fan of DeltaWalker, and this developer stays hard at work to add whatever "spit and polish" is needed to make the application the best in its class.

DeltaWalker has helped me countless times at work and I've used it while sharing out videos using 2 or 3 way comparisons when the problem "must be on my end". Using this app, I've taken the guess-work out of what happened over the course of X, whether it be minutes, days, months, years.

As an example, we had a client that was having some cisco config issues and the problem was very niche in nature. A 3rd party company was convinced that the issue was because of a config change on my side, somehow. Going through analyzing the configs (they can get pretty long) I illustrated a 3-way comparison on when the devices on the network were working, as well as when they weren't working, using 3 separate configs that we automatically backup. DeltaWalker proved beyond any doubt, that there was nothing that had changed on my end between the 3 configs that would cause such behavior.

So we had the advantages of: a stable product, ease of use to make our case, dead-simple illustration in how the data was presented to the 3rd party company, easy-to-understand legend of what was different from all 3 files, and confidence that we had covered all of our bases. The time saved by using DW paid for itself (I can guarantee you) 10 times over, at least. Time is money - and we had a total of 3 contractors involved in this particular incident.

MacUpdate's description says DeltaWalker Oro requires Lion or later - BUT the Developers website says DeltaWalker runs on Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), 10.8 (Mountain Lion), 10.7 (Lion), 10.6 (Snow Leopard), 10.5 (Leopard), both 64 and 32-bit, as well as 10.4.6 or newer (Tiger). I downloaded v2.0.1 Oro, and it works fine on Snow Leopard.

I've been looking for something like this for a long time. It is so easy to use to copy either the whole file differences or individual lines from one file to the other, copy new files in one to the other folder, delete files in a folder.

Demo doesn't work with 10.6.8. Demo worked briefly and I was ready to buy, but then I got a spinning beach ball when I tried another Word file. Force quit and tried again, entire mac froze. Restarted mac, removed DeltaWalker and then reinstalled. Result: spinning beach ball again.

mgus, sorry to hear about your suboptimal experience with DeltaWalker. Would it be possible to get a snippet of the Word file in question causing the hang?

I bought quite a few other document comparing apps and Oro Deltawalker is the way to go. Its helped me tremendously when comparing Bible text between 3 different Bibles, you can spot differences with ease and then do research to track down which one is corrupt

Well worth the investment, the JW kept insisting their Bible was the best, they stopped coming by when I pointed out the changes they made in the text.

Have been using DeltaWalker Oro Edition for about a year now.

I have been in contact with the developer for inquiries as well as a few questions to help me make the most of the application. In all conversations, the developer has been extremely helpful and responsive.

A few things that I use it for are as follows:
1> Portability...I keep it on my USB drive and use it on only 1 machine at a time and commonly use it for home folder migrations on Windows servers. Used to use competing products (free and commercial) but found that using DeltaWalker was quicker and more stable than competitors.
2> File transfers from differing OSes...since the works on all the platforms I need to support, I can commonly transfer home folders, application directories, etc., from a Windows server to a Mac server and vice versa. Apps can be transferred from same platform to same platform easily, as that example above is more for platform-independent home folder transfers. Even if I'm transferring via FTP on one server to an AFP connection on another, it works fantastic. I'll commonly transfer home folders from Windows or Netware to a Mac server with ease.
3> Stability...I was concerned that this app, being written so heavily around Java, would be a frequent crasher or slow down when I needed to make sure it was going as fast as possible. That was a worry, based on other apps that I used in the past that were poorly coded. I have personally transferred Terabytes or data with this app without a hiccup. It performs and I can't even make it crash, regardless of how I click, when I make changes, doing random re-comparisons while it's already calculating my differences, and so on.
4> Visual differences...Last year, my company started using Dropbox really heavily and we still do to this day. We certainly love dropbox, but we also commonly work on files at the same time without realizing it. When people save, we will end up getting conflicting copies of a Word Document, Excel Spreadsheet, etc. This was a problem in the past, but isn't anymore with DeltaWalker Oro Edition. I take the comparison between the 2 files and I can see visually what needs to take place on one file versus another and commit to the changes, or make any necessary changes before committing. For anyone using Dropbox in a team environment, I was really hoping to find such an app to comb through the changes on a single or set of files when conflicts occurred but never figured someone could make it visual enough to be decent. DeltaWalker proved me wrong.

I saw the promo on MacUpdate last year and purchased after trying it out. I have no problems with giving a responsible developer money and support to continue funding a product that I use constantly to help my workflow efficiency on a daily basis.

Nothing compares. For the developer and archiver, alike, ORO is simply extraordinary.

Hands down the best service possible. They are so responsive, you will simply not believe they can keep it up, but they do. If your time is valuable, this is an extreme tool for you.

Once in a while a company gets a product right and keeps it that way. Delta Walker ORO is that. I have become dependent on the ease and functionality of the compare/diff and archive functions...........and with that responsive service, they just are not going away....and that makes my dependence feel that mush better!

Thank you!!! Keep it up!!!

RogerKatz had trouble on 26 Nov 2013
The 64-bit version of DeltaWalker Oro crashes on Snow Leopard. The 32-bit version works fine for me on Snow Leopard. I understand, via a prompt and timely response from the developer, that there has been a very newly discovered incompatibility for DeltaWalker's 64-bit version with MacOS Snow Leopard - and they are working on a fix for that. All is OK for MacOS X 10.7.3 and later.

Hi there,

Does it see inside Adobe InDesign docs? I have a lot of work in ID, with different versions of things that it would be helpful to see inside.

What about non-text files, such as Photoshop? Can it tell what copy of different files were edited most recently? Does it see other stuff related to PS file editing?

I'm trying to decide, aside from the above questions, whether I really need Oro or not. I don't need all the platforms, only Mac. I'm assuming the 3 folder/file comparison means just that - pick 3 folders and have it compare all 3 instead of just 2 in the standard edition? Can you please explain the XML feature? I do a bunch of photo editing with Adobe Lightroom, using XML sidecar files. Aside from that, I don't know if I need that feature. But does the regular edition still look at XML files in terms on content as opposed to "structure visualization and comparison?" (as I'm not sure I understand what structure visualization would mean here).

As I don't know what Git is and such, I'm assuming I wouldn't need it for those features.

Thanks!
