MultiPar v1.2.9.6 Updated

webfork on 16 Aug 2016
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Jul 2016
  • Suggested by MarkyMark

MultiPar is a parchive program helps with data verification, error detection, correction, and recovery. Ideal for backups and data transfers via unreliable connections, the program generates an additional file that's a customizable percentage of the original file(s). Although larger PAR files are able to recover greater damage to the original, meaning the data is more redundant and reliable, the program can fit a PAR into available free space (e.g. saving 650 megs to a 700 meg CD will mean a 50 meg PAR file).

Since offline media can be scratched or damaged and some networks intermittently fail, PAR tools can help determine if there is a problem as well as fix broken data. For archives like zip and 7zip, it can add recovery data similar to the RAR "recovery record" feature.

Functional in Linux/Mac via WINE. The program supports multi-threading, multiple processors, can recurse subfolders, and functions with standard PAR, PAR2 and (experimental) PAR3 formats.

@billon
Fine, thanks for the response.

Would it not be better to link Multipar to the official site, instead of this third-party, unofficial site, at least so that the developer can benefit if someone chooses to donate?

HashMyFiles is a small utility that allows you to generate unique file identifiers (hashes) using a variety of different popular tools. 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 ranging form fast to secure include CRC32, MD5, SHA1, 256, 384 and 512. The various hashing information can be saved to a report (text/html/xml) that includes name, path, dates, file size, version, and other info.

@webfork,
I dont see a forum link for this post, I also sent the author a report, testing this version (1.97) he still didnt fix it.
I agree that NirSoft utilities are a must have, i myself use few.
From my own experience, the author is lazy when it comes to feedback.

Anyway, to produce the bug...
-Drop a large file and sop the process before its complete, lets say at 2%
-Drop a small file and it will scan old file first.
Most likely he doesn't empty a variable when you break/stop the operation. Should be an easy fix.

@Ganamyde: Point taken. Thanks for the breakdown.

webfork on 14 Jul 2016
  • 461KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 27 May 2008
  • Suggested by otaku

Fsum Frontend allows to compute message digests, checksums, and HMACs for files and text strings. It supports drag-and-drop and can function on batches of files at once either for creation or verification.

The program supports a host of different hashes including common like CRC32, MD5, and SHA256 as well and many obscure hashing methods (96 total). Allows both batch creation and verification.

As the name implies, the program uses FSUM.

Unicode is not supported. Fails.
Also, crash occurs on drag-and-dropped folders

guinness on 2011-06-21 13:30

Thanks. Updated.

webfork on 2012-03-04 21:42

Very simple operation means this is a terrific program for people who ordinarily would never use a hashing program. I takes users step-by-step through the process with a lot of hand-holding. Only works on whole directories and not for individual files (unless done one by one) or recursively.
