Get the hash codes of files and text using this intuitive tool that supports CRC32, MD5, SHA1, SHA2 and SHA3 (224-, 256-, 384- and 512-bits)
Checksums are a great way of verifying file integrity, thanks to the fact that files are made of a unique series of data packets, which means that each file has a fingerprint.
Checksum Aid is an easy-to-use Windows application designed to help you calculate the hashsums of not only files but also text. It identifies CRC32, MD5, SHA1, SHA2 and SHA3 hashes. When it comes to SHA, it supports 224-, 256-, 384- and 512-bits.
Calculate checksums of text and files, including a list of files
The software tool can be easily installed, thanks to the fact that there are no special options involved in the setup operation. As far as the interface is concerned, Checksum Aid adopts a simple look and doesn't put emphasis on the visual aspect, preferring to focus on delivering straightforward functionality instead.
There are three distinct areas dedicated to generating hashes for text, files and a list of files. The last area is reserved for batch processing since the utility is capable of showing the hashsums of multiple files at the same time.
Supports CRC32, MD5, SHA1, SHA2 and SHA3 hashes
The CRC32 hash used by the program is CRC-32b, to be more precise. Furthermore, if you want to calculate SHA-256 checksums, it's necessary to select SHA2 and then 256 bits. To find out the hashes of a list of files, you have to pick the hash type before adding files to the list because the calculation is performed immediately afterward.
It's possible to save the hashes to a CSV file for safekeeping as well as to copy any of them to the clipboard. When it comes to program preferences, you can convert the hash characters to lower or upper case, set the data format to ASCII, UTF8 or Unicode, and pick another skin for the graphical interface.
All in all, Checksum Aid offers a simple solution for calculating the hashes of text and files. It worked smoothly throughout our testing.
