A Linux and Windows GUI to enable the rapid selection and subsequent hashing of files (individually or recursively) text and physical disks. Designed for Linux, but also available for Windows. MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512 available. CSV\HTML\Clipboard output.
Since v1.5.0, a source folder can be hashed, then copied & reconstructed to destination folder where the content is hashed again (verification). Since 1.5.5, selected file masks available (*.doc; *.xls etc).
Since v.2.4 Windows users are able to hash physical disks (SHA-1 only).
LINUX USERS NOTE:
Ensure binary is executable - right click --> permissions --> "Allow executing as a program" or in terminal type "chmod +x QuickHash". To be able to hash disks in Linux, run as sudo:
Only 32-bit Linux version currently available.
Lastly, you may not be able to run it from a USB drive - copy it to your PC and run it.
- 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)
- ASCII and Unicode aware on both Windows (as of v2.3) and Linux (as of always)
