I use Beyond Compare by Scooter Software. Its not free in any sense but 
it is the best comparison GUI that I know of and I have paid to use it 
at home and work bought me a copy as well.

There are other solutions out there, just Google for 'directory 
comparison program' and you'll get many hits.
