    "Great Addition To Windows 8"

    July 30, 2014   |   By matrixation

    Version: HashTab 4.0

    Pros

    It works in the background. It gives you the CRC32, MD5 and SHA-1 hash values in the file properties so you can compare it to the original file or click the "Compare a file..." button to do it for you.

    Another thing that may be of interest is that I am using on Windows 8.1 and it runs perfectly. There is no Malware or hidden Browser Bar installations (I hate when installers do that!!!!)

    Cons

    Ok...I actually have no cons BUT it's worth noting that this program is NOT designed to COPY or MOVE files (or trees) and perform a file check all on-the-fly...for this, I use Teracopy. HashTab will only give you the Checksums for individual files. For multiple files or trees, I use HashCheck to generate the Checksum file from within the Properties dialog box.

    Note: I have over 25 years experience with data preservation and I'm not affiliated with any developer or any entity; I'm just an end-user that needs to make sure that my precious file, when copied from hard drive to hard drive, are EXACT copies with NO ERRORS!

    Summary

    Sorry to mention what I did in the Cons section but since I use this software in conjunction with two other software programs, I have to note the integral aspects of the programs associated with HasTab.

    Download it, I can firmly guarantee that you will be very pleased with its results.

    "Does not work in Win7-64?"

    April 19, 2013   |   By david WCS

    Version: HashTab 4.0

    Pros

    I have been using HashTab for a few years now and love it on my XP boxes and it works great.

    Cons

    I tried installing it on my main Windows 7-64bit and nothing, no File Hash Tab?

    Summary

    looking for other products that will work in a modern OS

    "Absolutely beautiful software"

    January 25, 2012   |   By windows7user55

    Version: HashTab 4.0

    Pros

    Does exactly what it says: calculates different types of hashes for a given file and even automatically compares hashes. Near seamless integration with Windows Explorer (addition of a tab to the properties window).

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    Excellent software if you download and verify files often (ie. Linux ISO files, etc.)

    "Superb addition to file Properties"

    September 30, 2011   |   By prospector16

    Version: HashTab 4.0

    Pros

    Simple. Intuitive. Unobtrusive but ever present. Wide range of hash functions. Performs comparison of computed hash values with a predefined hash value.or with the hash values for a second file.

    Cons

    None. What more could you want in a Tab?

    Summary

    Adds File Hashes Tab to Properties Window. Quickly computes wide range of hash functions when Tab is selected. Compares hashes with value pasted into Tab. Compares hash values for a second file when file is drag and dropped or pasted into Tab (or click Compare File button and navigate to the second file). Copy any hash value using right click.

    "Version 4 does not work with Windows 2000"

    September 08, 2011   |   By pr3ssur3

    Version: HashTab 4.0

    Pros

    Found version 1 elsewhere which did work with win2k and is very fast but does not have the drag and drop of version 4.

    Cons

    Version 4 only works with XP or better. A checksum utility might work better if just designed as an explorer right click context menu item.

    Summary

    Fast. Intuitive. sha1, md5, and crc32. Great for checking downloads. I could not find version 2 in the wayback machine. Too bad cnet doesn't keep older versions for download, or at least keep the system requirements up to date.

    "Excellent - Simple and Sweet"

    April 09, 2011   |   By bill3333

    Version: HashTab 4.0

    Pros

    Right Click File > Properties > File Hashes > and it immediately starts creating the hashes > copy and paste the file you wish to compare into the box > Bingo, your done.

    Cons

    None, and I've been using it for 3 years.

    Summary

    Its so easy to use, it will likely throw you at first. I tried many other file hash programs and they were incredibly complicated.
