Editors' review

Accurately check files utilizing 14 hash standards with this simple freeware executable. WinHasher's simple to use, dialog-sized, multitabbed interface makes it very easy to create and check hash files.

WinHasher can check and create 14 standard hash formats. Checking a single file is a mere matter of using the pull-down to select the hash format, browsing to the file, entering the known hash, then clicking Compare. The app immediately returns a positive or negative response. If you need a hash for a single file, you can use the same screen to calculate the hash.

Creating a hash file in the second tab is a bit more time consuming. Use check boxes to choose which hash functions you want created. A compact file browser opens to choose folders and files to include in the hash file. Click a button when you're finished and the hash values are immediately saved. Unfortunately, the app always gives the file the same name so you run the risk of overwriting previous hash files.

The final tab makes it a snap to compare a folder's hash file with the files included. One click to browse to the hash file and you're set. The app identifies the good, bad, and missing files.

Hash is of interest primarily to file traders and programmers. Both groups will find this application helpful and easy to use.

    "Beauty in Functional Simplicity"

    June 15, 2013   |   By DaDreamWizard

    Version: WinHasher 1.0.3

    Pros

    - Great simple UI.
    - Generates: Nice choice of 'updated' more secure hash algorithm's.
    - Checks/verifies
    - The output options are great.
    - It can hash text -

    Cons

    none......

    Summary

    Over years have played with many Hash programs. It's simplicity combined with it's sophistication is really welcome.

    It's portable, small. Even if you have another hash app, putting WinHasher in a toolbox is easy and at under 100KB it becomes a no brainer.

    "More than I'd expect"

    December 21, 2009   |   By DynV

    Version: WinHasher 1.0.3

    Pros

    Compare checksums of different formats with a great interface
    Create hashes
    Has a multiple file package system

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Summary

    Verify/check/compare checksums of different formats with a great interface, it also does the inverse process creating hashes but I didn't expect to have a sophisticated multiple file packages, that's great if you have projects with multiple files making it quicker and easier.
