Comparing an archive's contents against the filesystem allows you to check whether the filesystem has changed since the archive was created. Any files which are different from those in the archive will be shown in the message window.
To diff an archive, select Archive->Compare files from the main menu and a dialog window will appear.
If this option is not selected then there will be no output until the comparison is complete. Dar will then give a summary of the results.
