difference btw diff and dwdiff and other cmd line
If one wants to only output files (JPEG, doc, etc.), which have been created, absent or modified
diff -r -q
works well, any advantage for another command?
Subtilities between commands for issues like:
* identical content, but renamed files
* identical names & date & weight, but different content (virus)
2/ Is there a way to tell diff to store in a specific directory all missmatched files?
diff - r -q oldBackup actualData /media/sda1/discrepant
Where diff would store in media/sda1/discrepant all files which are new or modified after comparison between oldBackup and actualData

diff - r -q oldBackup actualData > /media/sda1/discrepant or diff - r -q oldBackup actualData | tee /media/sda1/discrepant
