You apparently used dired-diff.

Please just provide the recipe as part of your question. Don't throw a (very hard to read) screenshot at us.

The behavior of the command depends on your OS diff command. Use M-x man diff to see what switch possibilities there are and whether any of them help you get the behavior you want.

If so, then use C-u dired-diff. You'll be prompted for the switches to use.
