Files - Checksum Calculators (18)

MD5 Checksum Tool v3.2.0.0 Updated

Checker on 24 Jul 2014

MD5 Checksum Tool allows users to generate the file checksum to check if a file is legitimate and uncorrupted. Capable of scanning a folder and subfolders (recursive), as well as reporting with a file checksum of all files with filename and file size.

Includes the ability to compare two files with their respective checksums and supports MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512 checksums.

A 64-bit version is available (within the x64 folder).

There's no [portable] link anymore on the homepage (where other apps do) and I can verify that v2.8.0.0 writes it's setting to the registry.

Disregard my previous comment, something screwed up my regShot. It only writes the EulaAccepted key to the registry. Not stealth and a little annoying but otherwise portable...

Couldn't get this to run reliably at all. Constant freezes; always had to kill it with Task Manager.

@ Ganamyde: NirSoft has been remarkably bug-free for the duration of my work here on PFW. Apart from a dedication to small and portable, reliability is one of the primary draws to his tool set. Please send something to the author or at least post about the bug in forums.

Ganamyde on 2013-06-24 09:35

@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.

MultiHasher v2.6.1 Updated

webfork on 14 Jun 2014

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.

In the application folder, create an empty text file and name it

User Preferences.json

This only save a txt file !!

Wolfghost on 2014-01-07 17:46

If you use category All Files it will make a .json file

bzl333 on 2014-04-04 19:53

it opens a browser for the VT results :(

PeStudio shows the results in its own GUI.

would be nice to have program like this that you enter a folder or partition of say all your portable apps and this program works slowly in the background at like 5% of CPU and checks all hashes against VT, option to upload those unknown, then stores to a small database and gives the option to recheck every so often against the hashes stored, etc. And option to select filetypes that dont need to be scanned. Would be a good security program.

  • Suggested by Ttech

Hasher is a file verification system supporting drag-and-drop, multiple hashes at one time, and a log viewer to show a list of processed files. The program can save to a verification file or copy hash results to clipboard. Many compare options are available or you can run multiple instances to compare hash results side-by-side.

The program works with files, directories, or text, supports unicode paths, and covers most common hash formats including CRC32, MD5, SHA1. Also features the high-security SHA256/512 among others.

Note: Lite version is restricted to 100 files per hash run.

My new favorite hash program. Used this today to compare two different lists of similarly-named PDF files? The log file system and easy options were a breeze to use and compare a short list of files.

Though I still wish it had options for checking files in folders and subfolders, as well as automatic verification for example in checking the contents of CD for errors / scratches, this is clearly at the top in terms of hash checking here on the site.

abc on 2012-06-09 04:33

Needs support for SHA-2 (SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512), it's becoming more common now days. The interface is quite good though

den4b on 2014-02-20 21:32

I just wanted to let you know that your suggestions have been heard and implemented.

@ Jon: Latest version can compute multiple hashes simultaneously.

@ abc: SHA-256 and SHA-512 have been added in the latest version.
