Editors' Review

+

This application does a great job of comparing files to a listed checksum number to insure the files aren't corrupt, but the interface test can be difficult to see.

SFV Checker's spreadsheet-style interface presents the facts with a minimum of wasted space. Some testers wished for an option to enlarge the type size. The application performs flawlessly. Simple File Verification (SFV) files are added to many downloads to ensure you get what you expected. SFV Checker quickly compares the expected file checksums to your files. You get a warning if there is a problem.

If you are sending a group of files, this application can quickly generate an SFV list for your recipient. An added bonus is SFV Checker's search function. You can download many groups of files with multiple SFV files, and this utility can find and compare all SFV files.

The demo is a mere 15-day trial, but intermediate to advanced users who download many files will find SFV Checker useful, accurate, and quick.

"Software doesn't work"

February 06, 2008  |  By cmhmike

 |  Version: SFV Checker 1.19

Pros

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, IT DOESN'T WORK

Cons

I downloaded and installed this software twice, got the red bullseye icon on my desktop, double clicked on it which is pretty standard for starting software but nothing happened! I wasn't able to get the software to do anything. Consequently I've uninstalled it both times and needless to say I'll never download software from this company again.
