FileVerifier++ checks and compares files to see if they have been modified. Supports drag-and-drop, recursive directory processing, patterns, color coding, export to a variety of hashing formats (.sfv, .md5, .csv, etc.) and more. Can use any of 21 different hashing algorithms such as CRC16 for speed and SHA-512 for security (uses the standard MD5 by default).

The program (ZIP version) will automatically ask to create verification files with relative pathways, which is much more portable.

Win2K users should use an earlier version. A beta 64-bit version is available.

Runs on:Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPL v2
How to extract: Download the ZIP package ( and extract to a folder of your choice. Delete files fvshell.dll, winfvc.exe; fvc.exe, fvc-batch.cmd, fvc-batch.js. Launch fv.exe.
Similar/alternative apps: MultiHasher
What's new? Applied:
  • A workaround for a condition causing a brief delay in the program exit on certain systems.
  • A situation where the program would crash upon recalculating or verifying a list where a significant number of files are skipped initially.
  • A situation where the program will crash upon writing lists with entries with dates prior to 1/1/1970. Any dates prior to this will be set to 1/1/1970. This restriction will be lifted in future versions.

There is a version of FV++ that works with Windows 2000. The version is v0.6.4.6010 (it is under fileverifier-testing). While several of the icons do not render properly under Win2K, it is functional.

Also, there is no functional difference between the installed version and the ZIP version, at least in terms of the program itself. The executables are identical. What makes a FV++ installation portable is the presence of the fv.cfg file in the installation directory. There are no differences besides this and the lack of an installer.

A little intimidating at first, but so far looks like the best file verification tool I've tried yet. Fast, recursive directory verify, open source, relative pathways, and multiple different verification methods? Dream come true for making sure your data hasn't changed or corrupted. Recommend MD5 for general file verification and SHA 256 for security verifications.

ii doesn't work with Win2k so if you have to transfer a big file from Win 2000 to Win 7 safely , you cannot

I tried it three times, it wouldn't install.
