#45 Shell Extension for Windows Explorer Context Menu


I would find FsumFrontend a great deal more convenient if I could create checksum files through a shell extension within Windows Explorer. I am looking for a superior program to supplant the un-updated (and sometimes buggy) hkSFV, and this is the only major/necessary feature I find lacking in FsumFrontend.

Of course, this feature would be an option--and not default behavior. Additionally, similar to hkSFV, the menu would be cascaded, and options for creating each type (SFV/MD5/SHA/etc.) would be available (or optionally available). Additionally, if ticket 2388421 were enabled (to create multiple types of hash files for the same set of files), one could select a context menu option such as "Custom: SFV/MD5/SHA" or "Custom: MD5/SHA512"--depending on what he/she specifies as his/her "custom" set of hash file types.

This would greatly improve the usability of FsumFrontend, and finally give me an alternative to hkSFV. Thank you,
