Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
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.
