File Checksum Tool Description
File Checksum Tool is a lightweight Windows utility designed to calculate the hashing algorithm of any file, regardless of its format.
It offers support for SHA1, MD5, MD2, HAVAL, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512 signatures.
The installation procedure does not take a long time to finish. However, users should be careful when going through the setup steps, since File Checksum Tool offers to download and install third-party tools that it does not need to work properly.
The interface is based on a regular frame with a neatly organized layout, where you can point out the file to verify using either the file browser or drag-and-drop function.
Once you specify the signature type, you can set the app to calculate the file’s hash with the click of a button. It is possible to convert the value to uppercase, copy it to the Clipboard, as well as to save it to an external file for closer inspection and safekeeping.
Last but not least, File Checksum Tool implements an option for comparing the resulted checksum with another one (pasted in a box), in order to find out if they are identical or not. There are no other notable features available.
The app has minimal impact on computer performance, as it uses low CPU and RAM. It is very responsive to commands and works fine, without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation. All in all, File Checksum Tool gets the job done.
