The PortableApps Platform has been updated (a few times) since this was last updated.
I believe the current version is 11.2 (also there is a version 12 beta, I think its Beta 2)

Please update this listing!

HashMyFiles is a small utility that allows you to generate unique file identifiers (hashes) using a variety of popular checks. These can help determine if a file has been modified or corrupted, as well as help determine the file's reputation by submitting to the VirusTotal database for malware analysis.

Formats supported range form fast to secure with CRC32, MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512. The various hashing information can be saved to a report (text/html/xml) that includes name, path, dates, file size, version and other info.

One cannot copy "SHA-384" and "SHA-512" values from context menu or via a hot key- to get "SHA-384" and "SHA-512" values one have to save to file ("Save Selected Items Ctrl+S") which is awkward.

How about dropping a gentle hint to nirsofer@yahoo.com ?

"How about dropping a gentle hint to nirsofer@yahoo.com ?"
If someone does this I will appreciate- I remember that long time ago I messaged NirSoft about something and since I got no response I will not try again. More- lately I am not in a very gentle mood. ;)

WinInfoView runs exclusively under Vista / Win7 / Win8, as noted in the System Requirements.
For the diehard WinXP users among us, Nirsoft maintains two equivalent wireless monitoring utilities :

Very happy: I just used this program to help track down the least-used channel in an area with a LOT of wireless connections and a lot of interference. This saved a lot of time, effort and energy (including electricity as multiple devices keep rebroadcasting their data).

I was also impressed by the amount of data it pulled from the various WIFI services in the area. Great program.

Very helpful program, was able to find issue causing problems :)

WizTree v3.22 Updated

billon on 18 May 2018
  • 11MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 18 May 2018
  • Suggested by I am Baas

WizTree is a very fast disk space analyzer and search tool, scanning a single folder or your entire hard drive quickly and showing those files and folders using the most disk space. The program uses the NTFS Master File Table (MFT) feature in Windows to rapidly view files.

Note that this high-speed mode is limited to local, NTFS-formatted drives. The program must do a (much slower) scan of FAT-formatted or network drives for analysis.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch WizTree.exe or WizTree64.exe.

Nice little piece of software. However SpaceSniffer is even better and faster. Link found in Similar/alternative apps. Check it out.

@mcodex:
I tested spacesniffer on my C: drive (running as administrator) and it took 1m 56s to complete
WizTree's scan took 4.6 seconds (25x faster than SpaceSniffer)

Special on 2017-12-11 14:17

Yeah I'm not sure what mcodex is smoking, you can like Spacesniffer more because of *reasons, that's subjective, but speed in this case is not. WizTree is damn fast.
