HashTools Description

HashTools is an intuitive and approachable software utility which facilitates fast computation when it comes to CRC32, MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512 hashes.

It is practical for all users who want to check the integrity of files by matching them against these signatures, as well as to find out whether two files have identical content or not.

Quick setup and clear-cut interface

The installation procedure is brief and the only noteworthy aspect about it is that HashTools offers to integrate an entry in the Windows Explorer context menu to rapidly find out the hash of a file.

Its interface is clean and easy to navigate, and it does not contain special graphical elements, allowing users to immediately dive into the configuration procedure.

Indicate one or more files for calculation

Apart from the Explorer right-click menu, you can select files for processing by dragging them from the desktop to the main frame or by using the classical file browser. Batch processing is supported, which means that a selection of multiple files can be made, or all items from a specified directory can be submitted for analysis.

Examine hashes and compare files

All you have to do is click a button to find out the preferred checksum type, wait for HashTools to finish the computation, and view the list with the signature of each file, along with its full path.

Hashes can be copied to the Clipboard or exported to a SFV file. What’s more, you can point out a second hash for file comparison: matching strings are highlighted in green and the others in red.

Evaluation and conclusion

We have not encountered any unpleasant surprises throughout our evaluation because the tool did not freeze, crash or display errors. It calculates hashes in reasonable time and leaves a small footprint on computer performance.

All things considered, HashTools proves to be a reliable application for discovering and comparing CRC32, MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512 checksums.
