    Hi

    i used fot a lot of time Md5Checker.exe to compare 2 files via md5 hash

    i found a cool program FileVerifier++ , it features all the algorithm ,drag and drop , but can't compare 2 files via hash

    i would like a program like Md5Checker.exe ,maybe portable , with more sophisticated algorithm the md5 , with drag and drop feature that let me compare 2 or more files via hash


    may i know with software do you use?

    thanks
    cheers

    I like MultiHasher. It's developed by the same team behind HostsMan. You can also drag & drop, check with Virus Total... and more.

    Yes, it does. It can actually compare as many files as you want. For instance, you can compute and save the hashes, and later on compare the same file(s) against that saved list of hashes.

    As an example. Create a text file (write something in it) in your Desktop. Drag & drop it to MultiHasher. Choose the hash values you want to compute. Then go to File > Save list. Give a name to the list. Save it.

    Change the contents of the text file previously created, and save it. Then, go to MultiHasher and File > Open list, and open the previously saved list. It will highlight the previously hashed values in red.

    If the file wasn't modified, then the hash values would be highlighted green.

    Is that what you wanted? :)

    I think you'd need to add your Virus Total API Key to it. I never tried this function, so I may be wrong. But, there's a box to enter the API there, so...

    i'm used to run Md5Checker.exe , drag and drop 2 files, select them and click compare that's it
    is more easy , but MultiHasher has lots of features
    may i ask a question (off topic) ? HostsMan is the program that can download a list from servers and auto add them in the host file?


    thanks
    cheers
