ExactFile Beta

O. James Samson - October 27, 2010

ExactFile Beta is a program that has the combined functions of programs like; Fsum, Md5sum, ssfv, and sfalsum. Since it is multi-threaded, all those extra CPU cores on your system will actually get used to make checksum calculation of multiple files much faster. All versions of ExactFile (the console and the GUI) fully support Unicode; which is very unlike many other tools that may or never work on files names with non-ANSI characters. Version is still in Beta version, and some few noticeable changes include; installer that offers associate ExactFile with extensions like exf, md5, sha1, and sfv; and completes the Windows “open with support.”

Some of the things you can use ExactFile for include: using it to make sure files copied to CD-ROM are bit-perfect copies; using it to make sure backups copied from one drive to another are just right; and using it to make sure files haven’t been changed or damaged over time. Some of the features include: supports multiple checksum routines; supports recursive directory scanning; compatible with popular checksum digest format; and many others.

ExactFile is a freeware program, and is still in Beta stage. One may have to wait a while to see what becomes of it after this stage. However, it is still a great program all the same.
