Integrity Checker checks the integrity of your files to ensure they have not been tampered with. The files you select for protection will have their file size stored together with either a hash or HMAC (user selectable) generated from the contents of each file. By comparing this information with what is actually stored on your drives later, any changes will be flagged up for your attention. With some command line parameters, you can load and cross-check the list of files in the background and only be alerted if any integrity mismatch is detected.

Had problems testing with multiple multi-gigabyte files. Had a lot more luck using uTorrent to generate and verify hash files instead.

A useful but restricted program since files must remain on the same place on your system to check them. This means if a removable drives change letters for any reason, the files will not be able to verify.

This makes it difficult to verify files and media across computers -- one of the fundamental reasons to have file verification (to combat CD scratches, failed downloads, etc).

The author has not updated the program since Apr '06 so it doesn't appear this is going to be fixed.
