    Hi Raylin,
    Thanks for the great software. I’ve been searching for a tool like this and finally came across yours. I bought the pro version since I needed the folder option. However, there is no option to compare the folders or to generate the hash and compare them with a different folder. This will be extremely useful for people who need to compare folder sets / backups from the generated hashes.

    Is it possible to add the feature to compare the hash generated against a folder?

    Kind Regards,

      Hi Rad,

      Thanks for the support and feedback.

      Currently, for comparison, we can export the generated hashes file and use other free tools which are able to do comparison and highlight the differences. Some examples are Diff Checker (Online), Notepad++ (For Windows OS) & FileMerge (For Mac OS).

      Thanks for sharing the method for Linux/Ubuntu Operating System.

    Great software to compute MD5 checksum !
    there is an easier way: online checksum tools , what need is just your browser(chrome).

      Hi Daniel,

      Thanks for your comment and sharing the online tool for MD5 hash.
      My program can support more type of hashes without the need of an internet connection.

    Hi Raymond,

    Great program, I decided to go pro. Quick question that you’ve made already answered. How do I check the HASH/MD5 for an entire directory of files? I haven’t been able to figure that out.


    • 12. Raymond  |  September 6, 2022 at 12:08 am

      Hi Rick,

      In the Pro version, there is a Folder tab where you can generate the hash for the entire directory and subdirectories.


      • 13. Rick  |  September 6, 2022 at 12:18 am

        Hi Raymond,

        Yes, I’ve been using that feature and then saving off the has as an Excel or HTML. How do I check the hash for the directory, if I’m moving the entire file directory to a removebale drive or network drive. How do I get each invidivual files Hash checked to ensure it was copied correctly?

          MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility

          Richard Howard | January 21, 2017 at 12:03 pm

          Hashing files is great, but I need to check that I have copied folders from one external drive to another. Just too many files to individually check.
          Can I either get a hash for a whole folder or is there a way to compare hashes from the .csv lists of individual file hashes.


          2. Raymond | January 21, 2017 at 11:56 pm

          Hi Richard,

          Yes, you can get a hash for a whole folder using MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility Pro version.

          For comparison, there are free tools which are able to do comparison and highlight the differences. Some examples are Diff Checker (Online), Notepad++ (For Windows OS) & FileMerge (For Mac OS).

            Thanks, I had a feeling that functionality was missing in this app. Maybe consider it for a future interation. It’s very cumbersome to have to create hashs for thousands of files (which can take many hours) twice (once on the source and then on copied drive), then run a dif on the 2 files. Thanks again for the response
