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,

    I’ve been using the free version for over a year and just purchased the Pro version today. Would it be possible to give the option when checksumming whole folders (and including subfolders) to include the subfolder path with the filename or CVS report file when you save it?


    • 3. Dennis  |  June 15, 2020 at 11:44 pm

      I don’t require the full path, just the subfolders.

        Hi Dennis,

        Thanks for the support.

        There is an option to include or exclude subfolders in the Pro version. It also allows your to select the folder path and save it into a CSV report.

        For the folder path, it can only show the full path. If you need to remove the full folder path for some security reason, you may simply modify the report file by using the Find and Replace function from your excel/notepad e.g. Find the full path and replace it with blank or something else.

        Hope that helps.

    Hello, I have purchased the Pro version today, it is working pretty well. Thanks.

    I have 2 main questions, which I request you to highlight.

    My intended purpose is to create a checksum hash value for mp4 and zip files which are inside a folder. I wish to know which is the most reliable and future proof hash value format viz. SHA 256, SHA 384, SHA 512, CRC32 etc. I intend to use only one of these to same on computation time and save the generated hash inside that folder.

    Also is there a software that can take your “csv file” and verify the file integrity without manually entering the hash values like in your software.

    YOUR WEBSITE GETS BLOCKED BY BITDEFENDER AS DANGEROUS. It may be false positive or whatever…it has to be clean from the word go..

    I think you should do something about this..not good for business.

      Hi Rocketman,

      Thanks for informing. I have just logged a ticket to Bitdefender and reported this issue.

    where is download link?

  • 11. Gerald  |  May 5, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    This program is a very useful tool. I still lack the configurability of the CSV separator. Many programs need “;” instead of “,”. Then the program would be perfect!

    How to convert checksums to the original

    • 17. Raymond  |  March 31, 2020 at 1:09 pm

      Hi Eddie,

      Do you mean converting checksum back to the original file?
      I don’t think that is possible as generating checksum is a one-way function.


  • 18. Bill  |  March 18, 2020 at 4:33 pm

    That’s great! It is free, I like it.

    My apologies life got in the way and i forget to check back, in explorer showing
    your files i.e. pagefile.sys showing file size 16,777,216 kb, so when using checksum to show the hash values of the selected file, if you could consider adding a row that would show the size of the selected file i.e.

    “Size” “check box” ” size xxx,xxx kb” “copy size”,

    i think it would be a nice addition, i realize i wasn’t clear after i read it again

    Thank you muchly for your work & utility! =) It was a great help when learning to verify files. It’s hard to believe Microsoft doesn’t integrate something like your Util. into the shell.
