MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility Alternatives

    MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility is described as 'tool that allows you to generate CRC32, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384 and SHA-512 hashes of single or multiple files. You can also verify hashes with the matching file to ensure the file integrity is correct'. There are more than 50 alternatives to MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, PortableApps.com and BSD. The best alternative is HashCheck Shell Extension, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility are Hashtab (Free Personal), OpenHashTab (Free, Open Source), RapidCRC Unicode (Free, Open Source) and HashMyFiles (Free).

    3. This tool will generate hash strings to validate directories and files, in the same vein as hashdeep or fciv. I wrote it after giving up trying to find a decent tool to validate my backups.

      This is a win32 console application. There is no GUI, but you can use Explorer to drag files over md5sums.exe to obtain their md5 hashes.
    4. This software allows to generate MD (Message Digest) and SHA hashes from a file or files or files in a directory. Checksum is an value calculated from a content of file by special algorithm. You can also verify the file integrity of the downloaded document or program.
