Linux, Windows, and Apple Mac GUI that enables rapid selection & hashing of files (individually or recursively), text and physical disks. Designed for Linux, but also available for Windows and now Apple Mac. MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512 available. CSV\HTML\Clipboard output.

A source directory can be hashed, then copied & reconstructed to a destination folder where the content is then hashed again (verification).

Selected file masks available (*.doc; *.xls etc).

Since v.2.4.0 Windows users are able to hash physical disks (SHA-1 only).

LINUX USERS NOTE : The Linux zip contains both 64 & 32 bit versions. Use the correct one for your system - 32 bit won't work on 64 bit OS and visa versa.

APPLE MAC USERS : v2.6.3 available since October 2015.

  • Recursive hashing, or hashing and copying to reconstructed directory directory and re-hashing in destination directory.
  • Ability to hash physical disks in Windows and both physcial & logical disks if run in Linux (using root or sudo), e.g. /dev/hda or /dev/hda1
  • Simple recursive hashing of all files in a selected directory and its sub-directories
  • MD5/SHA1/SHA256/SHA512 algorithms available
  • 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
  • Results can be exported to CSV text file, or a HTML web file, or clipboard or all
  • ASCII and Unicode aware on both Windows (as of v2.3) and Linux (as of always)
  • Drag and Drop available for individual files
  • Full PDF manual with screenshots and explanation of all features.
  • No installation. No wizards. No registration. Just double click and use, instantly.
  • Open Source (please feedback any code improvements for future versions)
