  1. [kubuntu] Re: How compare content of directories and different files in kubuntu

    There are command line tools for this purpose. I use diff.

    Basic usage:



    diff path1/file1 path2/file2


    More advanced usage (in a very wide command line window to avoid line wrapping)

    This sounds good. I'll wait for your result with an image just like the NTFS one but with FAT32 file system would work with older Windows (your XP virtual machine).
