I've got two large directory trees--think years of client work for an agency. One is old and out of date; the other is larger and in current use. I'd like to delete the former, but I want to be sure that the latter is truly a superset of it (I suspect the former is an old archive or early edition of the latter that was carelessly copied and never deleted).
Using diff in its usual configuration would produce waaaaay too much output, because it would tell me about all the differences between the two directory trees. What I'd like to know is what command I could run to find out what files (if any) are on the smaller, older tree, that are not also available on the larger, newer tree.
Incidentally, I'm running cygwin on Windows--not sure it matters. If anyone would suggest using a windows utility instead, that's fine too.
