@billon: Good catch. The developer appears to have followed up with a 7zip version.

Is it stealth?

ripu on 2018-03-11 11:19

What are its advantages over Notepad2?

webfork on 2018-03-15 21:09

ripu: it has encryption+master password, more encoding options, more visual customizations, and lots of small updates/fixes. I haven't tested stealth status.

Andrew Lee on 27 Feb 2021
  • 868KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 25 Feb 2021
  • Suggested by Userfriendly

RapidCRC Unicode is a hashing program capable of checking and verifying the integrity of files, folders, or whole drives. The program includes process priority, ability to pause/resume analysis, job queuing, easily copy hashes to the clipboard and multi-threaded checks. If using checksum files (e.g. .sfv or .md5) for future verification, options include the ability to generate for every analyzed file, directory, or a single checksum with all hash data.

Includes direct support for CRC hashing in the filename (common for anime releases) for example: "MyFile [45DEF3A0].avi") Other algorithms range from fast to secure, including SFV(CRC32), MD5, ED2K, SHA-1/256/512 and Blake2sp.

Based on the original RapidCRC but updated with extended Unicode support.

This is currently my go-to program. I tend to add it to the "send to" menu on machines I'm currently using and it works beautifully to check one or more files. Also, the ability to insert the hash directly into the file name makes so much sense. Just drag-and-drop it into the window and instantly know if there's a problem. Great solution to the multi-step check.

I think there is something wrong with the "CRC into Filename" function. This occurs with files that lack a file extension.
