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.

    Does this program check the authenticity in a Linux file Sha256.txt.gpg as well as the Integrity Linux Sha256sum.txt?. Linux Mint 19.1 advises to check both before installing the iso.
    Thanks in advance

    I purchased the v2.1 Pro utiltiy. Are future upgrades free? If so, how will I upgrade the Pro version?

      Hi David there haven’t been any update for a longer time. And my personal opinion is, it is not necessarily needed as the product works as intended.

      If there is any reason for a 2.2 or 3.x then perhaps to recompile it in .Net 4.7 to make the config file obsolete or to optimize performance in case of bigger files (multithreading if even possible for one file), or more likely for folder operations. Also 64bit recompilation might be helpful, so it doesn’t use syswow64.

      Another thing I could think of would be new features like explorer integration to compare hashes of folders from Explorer

      Hi David,

      There is no plan for this yet.
