Comparing SourceSafe Dir with C: directory

Comparing SourceSafe Dir with C: directory

Comparing SourceSafe Dir with C: directory

I am looking for a way or comparing actual compiled code on the server with the content of sourceSafe to ensure that they are both in sync.

I can download the packages from the server and do a file by file comparison, and by setting 'ignore whitespace' the files do correctly match.

Howevr, if I do a full erver export and do a full directory comparison, i have no way of setting 'ignore whitespace' and almost every file fails the comparison.

I am sick of going through 200+ files individually pressing the Diff button. Does anybody know of a way I can perform the whole lot in one go?  My NT programming skills are zilch so if it is a command line solution, please could you give me the syntax.

Eternally grateful,

Steve Nightingale
