Editors' Review

+
You can't tell whether two files are identical just by looking at them, but your computer can figure it out by reducing the contents of each file to a single number and comparing the two. To do this it uses a set of calculations known as a hashing algorithm. The free and incredibly simple DigestIT uses the MD5 and SHA-1 algorithms. Just select one or more files and right-click them; DigestIT's context menu lets you instantly choose a hashing algorithm or verify files against a hash. Generated hashes can be saved to the clipboard or a file. In our tests, DigestIT processed a 2GB file without trouble. It's a handy little tool for software developers and cryptography buffs.

"Well Designed Software"

March 15, 2011

 |  Version: DigestIT 2004 3.0.2004

Pros

Simple to install and use.

Cons

None I've run into, and I've been using it for at least 4 years.

Summary

This piece of software is a great example of KISS. It does one thing and does it really well. The fact it hasn't needed an update since 2005 is a testament to the care in which it was originally designed. Kudos to the creators!

"Works on 64-bit!"

September 10, 2008  |  By delphistream

 |  Version: DigestIT 2004 3.0.2004

Pros

1) 64-bit Version available on Vendor's site.
2) Simple and effective.
3) Driven by context-menu.

Cons

1) Download.com's version is x86, not 64-bit.
2) Hash window feels too small.

Summary

I've used HashOnClick for years, but it broke my heart when I installed it on my 64-bit machine and found it didn't work. Then I head that digestIT supports 64-bit. I installed it, but that didn't work either. Then I realized that download.com's version was x86 (stupid me). Found x64 on the vendor site, love it.
