My favorite editor for multi-tabbed editing. Feature-rich.

Not stealth anymore, creates 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder.

Special on 2017-08-30 23:17

So in the 7.5.1 changelog it says it fixed the above 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder bug, but I'm still getting them, can anyone else confirm?

It is stealthy unless you change any of the options. That will leave C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\MiTeC\Task Manager DeLuxe\TMX64.ini

The homepage claims "...lightweight portable package with many more enhancements. It needs no installation and leaves no tracks in system so it can be easily used as portable application everywhere. ", which is incorrect.

Thanks for reporting, rqqt.

rqqt: confirmed, updated entry with additional instructions. Thanks for the note.

HashMyFiles v2.35 Updated

billon on 15 May 2019
  • 103KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 May 2019
  • Suggested by infimum

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.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch HashMyFiles.exe.
Similar/alternative apps: Hash, HashGenerator
What's new?
  • Added 'Copy SHA384' and 'Copy SHA512' options.
  • Fixed again the 'Open In VirusTotal Web site' option, because the link on 2.33 didn't work for some users. Also, HashMyFiles displays an error message if you try to use this option while SHA256 is turned off, because VirusTotal doesn't support MD5 hashes anymore.

"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. ;)
