Creating and validating checksums is a method used to determine if files have changed over time and are useful for documenting integrity and authenticity of digital files.
The main purpose of these tools is to create and/or verify checksum values.
- Exact File
Create and verify checksum values over time on single or multiple files. Choose from multiple checksum algorithms. (Windows only)
Create checksums using multiple algorithms at the same time. Identify duplicate files. (Windows only)
These tools can also generate checksums; however this is not their main function.
Especially useful in better understanding the composition of a folder of files, the main purpose of DROID is to identify file formats. During the process of file format identification file metadata is captured and checksums, if desired, can also be created and used to find duplicate files. (Multiple operating systems)
- Karen's Directory Printer
Document selected folder and file properties within a selected directory. Checksums can also be calculated. (Windows only)
