  • great product

  • Very useful project!

  • thanks man, great soft!

  • This is a somewhat understimated tool. Though it's command line, it comes with explorer integration via a massively customizable batch routine. With the proper use of batch commands it's incredibly mighty. I use it regularly to create checksums for files I send by email, the explorer integration works perfectly. Since you can modify the batch file you can have the output formatted to your liking, which makes it the most versatile checksum tool I know of.
