The free, open-source SchemaCrawler for SQL Server tool will do this for you. You can take human-readable snapshots of the schema and data, for later comparison. Comparisons are done using a standard diff tool such as WinMerge. SchemaCrawler outputs details of your schema
(tables, views, procedures, and more) in a diff-able plain-text format
(text, CSV, or XHTML). SchemaCrawler can also output data (including
CLOBs and BLOBs) in the same plain-text formats.

SchemaCrawler is available at SourceForge:
