A file hashing program supporting MD5 and SH1
A review of CHECKSUM by Fernando Ortega

CHECKSUM is a small utility which calculates the MD5 or SHA1 filehash of a file for you.

The program has a batch mode which can calculate the checksum files for everything you give it. To do that, just type in the path of the directory and choose your options: recurse, synchronize, individual checksums, etc. CHECK can output in uppercase and add file extensions, as well as support Winamp playlists.

Finally, choose between MD5 and SHA1 to determine which algorithm you would like to use. Once completed, files will have their corresponding .hash files.

CHECKSUM is not difficult to use and is perfect for verifying the integrity of files if you're planning on sharing them.

CHECKSUM features and highlights:
  • True point-and-click hash creation and verification
  • Choice of MD5 or SHA1 hashing algorithms
  • Effortless recursion
  • Multiple user-defined file mask groups
  • Automatic music playlist creation
  • Effortlessly handles all known legacy md5 files
  • Create lowercase or UPPERCASE checksums at will
  • Automatic synchronization of old and new files
  • Automatically add new hashes to existing checksum files
  • Integrated Windows Explorer context (right-click) operation
  • No-fuss intelligent checksum verification
  • Can be configured to permanently ignore any file types
  • Real-time tool-tip style dynamic progress update
  • Right-click the Tooltip for extra options
  • Extensionless checksum files
