Determine whether or not two files are identical.

Overview

Identical is great for determining whether or not two or more files (not folders) are the same. And it's free!

Using Identical is simple:

  • Drag files on Identical's menu-bar icon
  • The icon will then indicate whether or not the files are the same:
    • green checkmark = files are the same
    • red x-mark = files are different
What Identical is not:
  • Does not search for duplicates throughout your whole hard drive.
  • Only shows whether or not files are the same. Does not show the actual differences within the files.

What's new in Identical

Version 1.1:
  • Fixes visual bugs and adds support for dark mode on OS X 10.10 Yosemite
  • Increases system requirements to OS X 10.9.5
  • Various minor changes

If it’s only meant to be used sparingly (“a few times per year”), why make its primary interface a menubar icon — an interface typically reserved for more permanent and frequently used applications — instead of a regular discreet-use GUI? I’m just curious.

Fantastically handy. Yes, there are dozens of ways of comparing two files, but Identical is such a novel and intuitive implementation that I can easily recommend it to less tech savvy friends and family. Bravo.

For folks who don't know, there is a terminal command that does the same thing, with the bonus that for ascii files, it shows what the differences are. 'diff /path/name/file1 /path/name/file' For binary files, one will either get a clean return, meaning no difference, or 'files differ'.
