Marxio File Checksum Verifier

CNET Editors' review

Computers use checksums to check for data transmission errors; basically, they count the bits in a block of data and compare the number to a previously generated sum. If the two match, all is well; if not, something's gone wrong and it's time to look for data errors. Checksum verifiers are handy utilities that can scan software to verify its integrity. Marxio File Checksum Verifier calculates and verifies the checksums of programs downloaded from the Internet. It's free, compact, and portable, making it especially useful to system administrators and others who manage more than one machine.

This handy little app requires no formal installation or configuration: Just download it, click on it, and get right to work. The software checks to see if you have the latest version when you first use it. At 458K, it's quite small for 64 bit-compatible software. It has a small, simple, attractive interface that can be minimized to toolbar size. Simple control icons access a wide array of settings on the file menu and a link to further help and other resources at the developer's Web site. Drag-and-drop functionality and the ability to handle all major checksum types set Marxio File Checksum Verifier apart from other utilities of its type, which sometimes only work with a few file types or are difficult to configure.

Marxio File Checksum Verifier is freeware and is certified up to Windows 7. Its combination of competence, simplicity, and portability make it worth checking out.

    "Functional and portable"

    August 17, 2010  |   By Derek28061971

    Version: Marxio File Checksum Verifier 1.6.12

    Pros

    Huge number of keyboard shortcuts, supports all major checksum types starting from md5, through any type of SHA2 algo and ending in less known Tiger or Haval algo, customizable, mini-bar style, portable, free.

    Cons

    None, really.

    Summary

    Very good portable tool you can carry out on pendrive. Doesn't need installation and Explorer integration is only on user request. It can calculate checksums of every popular type - md4, md5, sha-1 and three types of SHA-2. What is amazing in this small application are keyboard shortcuts - over 20 ! IT also has a customizable user interface (GUI) - you may toggle betweek full size window form and some mini taskbar with only two edit fields available. It fully supports drag and drop function and more and more important stay-on-top function thanks to which you may have it opened all the time. You may also enable transparency together with stay-on-top function.
    Those all original ideas make this application a master in its class. Yes, it can calculate one file at a time, but so huge number of improvements make it real user-friendly tool.
    What could be included next ? Personally, I think that application of such type as Marxio File Checksum Verifier has reached user needs. There is nothing that can be improved because it's a perfect tool already.
    As some people and adverts say - you must see it to believe it. Yes, that's true. As of my job, I often need to calculate checksums of files before sending it to master server. After two days, I got used to FCV so much that I once got so angry when I took company laptop which didn't have this tool and I didn't take my pendrive and got so frustrated when I didnt have network access...It only 500 kB and one settings configuration file. Nothing more. I wish developers all the best in developing it as there is one thing I wish to have and I would surely buy such tool. It would be called Marxio FCV 2.0 that would be capable of handling hundreds of files. I hope we won't have to wait long and once it's been created, I can now assure you that this would be the best "checksum" tool ever created. User friendly but powerful. Times are hard, time is money, we all get used to shortcuts, we work faster and faster and it seems that we all need perfect tools. This is why I recommend FCV - even its 1.x version to everyone.
