Linux & Windows File Hashing GUI Tool
A Linux and Windows GUI to enable the rapid selection and subsequent hashing of files (individually or recursively throughout a folder structure) text and (on Linux) disks. Designed for Linux, but also available for Windows. MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512 available. Output copied to clipboard or saved as CSV\HTML file.
Since v1.5.0, a selected source folder can be hashed, then copied & reconstructed to a destination folder where the content is again hashed for verification. Since 1.5.5, selected file masks can be used, too (*.doc; *.xls etc).
LINUX USERS NOTE: Make sure the binary is executable - either right click and in 'permissions' area, tick box "Allow executing as a program" or in terminal type "chmod +x Filename". To be able to hash disks in Linux, run it as sudo as follows: sudo ./FileName. Lastly, you may not be able to run it from a USB thumb drive - copy it to the RAM home directory and run it from there.
- Recursive copying AND hashing of all files in a source directory to a destination directory
- Ability to hash physical and logical disks (if run in Linux using root or sudo), e.g. /dev/hda or /dev/hda1
- Recursive MD5/SHA1/SHA256/SHA512 hashing of all files in a selected directory and sub-directories, up to a theoretical max of 18 ExaBytes of data....or 250 thousand 4 TeraByte harddisks full of data
- Percentage progress indicator
- Designed as a GUI for Linux but also compiled for Windows
- Enables digital forensic practitioners or IT security staff to hash files at times when files have been extracted out from forensic software before or after transportation to non-forensic staff
- A simple non-confusing interface.
- Usually faster than mainstream hashing Windows tools
- All results can be exported to a CSV text file, or a HTML web file, or clipboard or all
- No installation. No wizards. No registration. Just double click and use, instantly.
- Open Source (please feedback any code improvements for future versions)
