PowerCompare - PowerShell script to compare two folders

Client: Personal project

Project Description: PowerCompare is a PowerShell script that provides a graphical interface for comparing the contents of two folders. It is intended to be simple and light.

Date: January 10, 2023


I developed this PowerShell script to be able to compare the contents of two folders. As soon as you launch it, it displays a GUI which allows you to select the two folders to compare.

As even the GUI part is in the script, it gives us a very simple and lightweight solution.

Here is the GitHub link for the project:


  • Graphical interface with text boxes "Folder 1" and "Folder 2" to specify the folders to compare.

  • Browse buttons to select folders to compare

  • Button "Compare" to start the comparison

  • List showing the differences between the two folders, including name, type (file or folder), and presence in each folder.

Instructions for use

  1. Download the script

  2. Open a PowerShell window and navigate to the directory containing the script

  3. Run the script using the following command: .\NPowerCompare.ps1

  4. Use the "Browse" to select folders to compare

  5. Click the "Compare" to start the comparison.
