MultiHasher v2.8.2

billon on 23 Apr 2018
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Feb 2016
  • Suggested by guinness

MultiHasher is a drag-and-drop tool for creating and checking file hashes, useful for checking data integrity. The program will check files, folders and even text using a variety of methods with both pause and cancel options for large operations. The program can then compare digests to detect changes as well as query the result to the VirusTotal database. A search tool lets you quickly track down both files or specific hashes from long lists.

A recursive checking option (entire directory trees) is available in the options menu. The program can also use existing, standard hash files such as MHX, SFV, MD5Sum etc. to check integrity.

Supports 64-bit operating systems and available algorithms include from fastest to most secure: CRC32, MD5, RIPEMD-160, SHA 1, 256, 384 and 512. Can include one, some, or all algorithms available in testing.

I've been using this program a lot for the MD5/SHA1 and VirusTotal features for postings here on PFW. That said, I still prefer RapidCRC Unicode for hashing / checking lots of files.

Enternal on 2016-01-08 13:55

Two bugs to be aware of. The first bug is:
Make a new directory with some files in it. Drag the folder into MultiHasher and make MD5 hash calculations for all those files. Save the hash list in MultiHasher own hash format (mhx). Clear the list. Load the hash list. Drag the folder back into MultiHasher to "add" the folder. MultiHasher then hangs. Versions prior to 2.7.0.0 worked fine.

With 2.8.0.0+, a new major bug:
MultiHasher refuses to load mhx files that are over a certain size. From what I test so far, any mhx files that are larger than roughly 150 KB refuses to load when you drag and drop the mhx files into the MultiHasher window. Instead, MultiHasher will treat it as a regular file to be hashed rather than a list of hashes. If you tried to load the file manually (Ctrl+O), MultiHasher will do nothing for these files. Files that are less than 100 KB loads perfectly both ways.

Both bugs have been reported (1st bug about a year ago). However author never replied and even deleted the thread and my forum account. In other words, be aware of any potential new problems with new versions and always keep old versions.

These bugs does not occur if you use file formats other than their own mhx format.

Anyways, like Webfork, I now prefer RapidCRC Unicode over this. RapidCRC Unicode has been rock solid and all bugs that I have reported to the author were taken care of or were promptly responded to.

I've been using PSPad for a number of years now and really like it. I find it much easier to configure and less complicated to use than Notepad++, its closest competitor. Also, it is still very much in development. Latest version, as of 12 Sep 2012 is V4.5.7 (2449) released 22 Aug 2012. It is my go-to text editor for everything.
There are a few annoying things with it however. It comes with 27 pre-installed languages which can be hidden but not uninstalled and there are only 5 slots for custom languages. I think that most people would not have a problem with that since the installed languages are the most popular but if you work in a shop using more obscure languages, you might be out of luck.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-14 13:59

I figured out how to uninstall the user-chosen (custom) languages but it takes a little work.
1: Open PSPad.ini (if you opened it with PSPad or if PSPad is running, save it as something else).
2: Delete the UserHighLighterName# value / data pair where the language is listed (the crosshatch is either null or a number between 1 and 4).
3: Delete the language key and all value / data pairs appertaining to it.
4: If PSPad is running, close it - then replace the PSPad.ini file with your changes. Voila! Your user-selected language slot is ready for another language!
I have posted a request to add a mechanism to do this automatically on the PSPad forum which is very active and the author of the software posts often - not what you'd expect from "dead" software.
BTW: Be cautious about using the installer - it seems to have had some problems. Use the zip file instead and unpack the files to a folder of your choice.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-14 14:46

If it's ok, I'd just like to make a few more comments:
Viniciusban writes that PSPad has no comment-out tool. I don't know if that was true when he posted, but it has one now:
Format menu / Add/Remove Comment.

Webfork writes that it has trouble handling Very Large Files (VLF). In my experience, there are only a very few editors that can handle VLFs without absorbing all available RAM and none of them (with the possible exception of UltraEdit) is as full-featured as PSPad IMHO. If I must view / edit a VLF, I always use HiEditor from WinASM.net as it is made specifically to work on VLFs without hosing the computer. Unfortunately, it isn't offered on PortableFreeware.com but it is completely portable, writes all settings to an INI file and is very fast.

Tom mentions that the "stable" version is 4.5.4. Currently it is 4.5.6 and was uploaded about 11 months ago. Beta version, available from the forum and updated August 2012, is very stable - if the latest version is wanted, grab it from there.

PSPad has its problems but they all do - that's why there isn't just a single text editor that everybody uses. While Notepad++ is (undeniably) the most popular text editor for programmers, I find its interface somewhat obscure and its learning curve a bit too steep to make it useful to me. PSPad's interface is much cleaner and simpler and, if I don't use it for months at a time, I can come back to it without worrying about relearning anything - that's why PSPad is my text editor of choice.

I reckon there should be a mention somewhere in the entry's description that Atom is based on (in fact, is like the ur-deployment of) the Electron framework [https:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electron_(software_framework)! Broken URL, please copy excluding the exclamation, paste and amend].

This software is not noisefree. Annoying and very disturbing cracks when using wifi with reduced bandwidth makes it unusable.

Mickey Dee on 2009-09-27 11:16

Phoner is at version 2.38 as of this posting. It works great from a USB stick. Tip: if you want audio ring tones and other sounds (feedback), then in menu "Options" sub-menu "Voices" change the settings for all (Incoming call, Outgoing call, Busy, etc...) from "x\install directory\Phoner\RingIn.wav" etc, to "..\Phoner\RingIn.wav" etc, etc... (without quotes). This way the sound files will work for any drive lettter your thumb drive gets allocated.
