MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility

MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility is a tool that allows you to generate CRC32, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384 and SHA-512 hashes of single or multiple files. You can also verify hashes with the matching file to ensure the file integrity is correct.

You may click on the Browse button to select a file/folder to generate hashes. Alternatively, you may also drag and drop or do a right-click on any file/folder to generate hashes. The generated hashes can be copied to clipboard or saved as CSV/HTML/TXT file.

    Hi Raymond. Nice and useful application. I bought the pro version, you deserve it.
    One remark/suggestion for improvement
    I am using the checksum in a Joomla! (J4.0.0 beta 4) extension that I have developed. Joomla! is validating the checksum and uses an all lowercase checksum (!), whereas your prg generates an all uppercase string. This results in a failing Joomla! validation.
    I have already informed Joomla! about this, but maybe you can add a config option to your application to select the desired character case of the generated checksum.
    Kind regard2! Rob @innato

      Hi Rob,

      Thanks for your support.
      Have noted on your feedback and suggestion.

    Hi Raymond,

    I am trying to use the SHA-256 hash value produced for a file to compare against SHA-256 hash value generated by my java progarm.

    The program uses UTF-8 charset and Bass64 encoding and it produced a different hash value when compare against your utility.

    May I know if it is possible for you to share the charset & encoding used by your utility so that I could what went wrong in the program?

      Hi Ee Tze Tan,

      I am using .NET Framework to develop this program and I don’t recall using any UTF-8 charset or Base64 encoding.

      For Java, seems like there is a MessageDigest class that should be able to generate SHA-256 hash from your file.

      Hope this helps.

    Tried to purchase the Pro version of MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility but was redirected to:
    which is not secure site.
    Please advice…

      Hi Boggie,

      Please try again.

    Been using for some time and has worked flawlessly. Today however I have just downloaded Hisuite from The SHA256 hash provided by Huawei is identical to what the utility says it should be but it says they do not match. “Hash does not match!”

    Please advise.

    • 9. Raymond  |  September 1, 2020 at 8:53 pm

      Hi Rob,

      I did a further analysis and found out that the SHA256 hash that they provided is for the executable file. You will need to extract the zip file and run the checksum validation on the exe file then it will match.

      The site did not mention clearly though,
      Hope this clarify your doubts.


      • 10. Rob  |  September 1, 2020 at 8:59 pm

        Thanks. I ran it on the exe and it did not match. Should have made it clear that it was not on the zip file.
        Both the checksum on the Huawei website and that which the checksum validation calculcated were the same but the message was still “hash does not match”

        • 11. Raymond  |  September 1, 2020 at 9:11 pm

          I just tried to replicate. Seems like if you copy the SHA256 hash from Huawei site, it is actually in this format:

          For this case, you may have to correct the formatting into a single line before verifying.



          • 12. Rob  |  September 1, 2020 at 9:48 pm

            Interesting. I had already formatted onto 1 line and it looked identical both to the generated checksum and the one I just pasted in now having just reformatted it again.

            This time it worked and confirmed it was identical. Thanks,

            Great to hear.

      Hi Raymond

      Do you think you can make a new app based on WPF? Windows powershell get-hash is pretty sufficient to run under the hood and it is pretty performant. So basically your gui would be only a GUI for get-hash and compare-object?

      What do you think?

      • 15. Raymond  |  September 6, 2020 at 4:41 pm

        Hi Karl,

        Thanks for your feedback.
        I do not have any experience on WPF, may explore on that.
