checkSum+ for Mac1.5.3

13 September 2009

Check for data loss on file transmission over newsgroups, etc.

What is checkSum+ for Mac

checkSum+ ... sfv, md5 and csv files are used to check for data loss on file transmission over newsgroups, CD burn and so on, based on md5 or CRC32 algorithms; checkSum+ can create and read these files and tell you (or others) when a file is or not corrupted.

Please note that these formats are supported experimentally. Since there are lots of apps in the pc-world able to generate these archives, I choose only the most common of them (such as the ones generated by QuickSFV or MD5Summer).

What's new in checkSum+

Version 1.5.3:
  • Added Snow Leopard support.
  • Dropped pre-Snow Leoopard support.
  • ed2k_hash upgraded to 0.4.0 and intel-ized.
  • sha2 intel-ized.

This app gets the job done, and it's awesome that it's free. However, it doesn't provide any kind of feedback that it's busy - the app just locks up while it is working on calculation. It would be nice to have a progress bar, spinner, or at least a busy cursor to let the user know that something is going on. With big files, it can seem like the app has just crashed.

This is Intel only of course. OS X 10.6 does not run on PPC-Macs.

Well, this is my best choice for checksum utils in Mac. (Not because the software is marvellous, but there is no better one for mac. iSFV doesn't work for non-anscii charset at all!) But comparing to quicksfv in Windows, there are at least two major drawbacks! 1. It can hash non-anscii charset like Japanese works, but chars in generated checksum are simply ????, so that I v to use vi to replace the filenames myself. Hope it will include UNICODE support in the future version. 2. It cannot recursively make checksum for a directory, but only files in the save folder. Although it has those drawbacks, I still grade it 5 for it seems to be the only checksum software that can hash files named with non-anscii chars. Hope it will be better and better in the future.

Unintuitive interface. Not clear what to do if all I want to do is view the MD5 for a file.

Of the various programs I have tried this comes in as my #2 choice. It is slightly slower than iSFV, and much faster than SuperSFV. (macsfv locks up) The interface is clean.
