    I'm looking for a diff-type tool for Windows that will report differences
    (and only differences, not all files checked) between the contents of
    folders. I'm just looking for missing/extra files and different file dates, I
    don't want to check the file contents. It needs to operate from a command
    line.

    Any suggestions?

    Diff like tool... how about diff? I think 'diff -rq' is what you want.
    get it for win32 here: http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/
