Checksum Folders

Checksum Folders for your Mac calculates and compares the checksums of all files in a folder and it’s subfolders. You can export the results as a text or CSV file.

 

 

 Why checksums are useful

  • Is my backup working? Compare an important folder on your harddisk or SSD with it’s backed up version.
  • Is my harddisk or SSD damaged? Compare a folder on your harddisk or SSD with an earlier version from a year ago.
  • Is my RAM corrupt? Compare a larger folder with it’s duplicate.
  • Is my folder copy forensically sound? Compare your copy with the original files and export your results.

Features

  • Calculates and creates a list of checksums of all files in a folder and it’s subfolders.
  • Compares (if needed) two folders and checks if they are identical.
  • You can interrupt your calculation or check, save your progress and continue another day.
  • You can save your completed calculation results and check them against another (or the same) folder later.
  • Export your results (just calculation or calculation & check) as a textfile or as a spreadsheet compatible CSV file.
  • Supported checksum algorithms are MD5 (faster) and SHA 1 (cryptographically more robust).
  • Shows the calculation progress of large files and the folder as a whole.
  • Uses a speed and memory efficient computation and data storage model.
  • Supports drag and drop.
  • 100% hand crafted native Mac application.

Tip 1: Store your Checksum Folders’ savefile within your backup. Now you can check the integrity of your backup whenever needed.

Tip 2: If you just want to calculate single checksums or if you want to compare a file with it’s checksum on a webpage, please take a look at Checksum Utility, it is made specifically for this purpose, for single files.
