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

Overview

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.

Requirements for checkSum+

  • Intel 64
  • Intel 32
  • Mac OS X 10.6.0 or later

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.

Can you point me to a QuickSFV file with Unicode support? Meanwhile, I will be working in a new format XML-based (ie, file.checksum+) with support for Unicode characters. But I'd be interested as well in supporting all QuickSFV's capabilities (I grabbed a copy and fired it in Parallels, but wasn't able to generate a sfv for files with Unicode chars??)

Thank you for your reply and your great job JULIFO! (Sorry that I accidentally click on the bumpDown button on your reply.) The QuickSFV i mentioned refers to: http://www.quicksfv.org/ I am a Japanese Mac user. The Japanese text files are usually encoded in ja_JP.UTF-8, or Shift_JIS(sjis) in Windows. But because I study in the university, I set the global language to English and locale to en_US.UTF-8. Here're the sample checksums for my ripped lossless CD generated both by the latest Checksum+ and QuickSFV. It would help me a lot if the UNICODE feature is included, and I am sure that as a result it will be more popular in non-english country like Japan. # Software: Checksum+ # Format: SFV ; Generated by checkSum+ v1.0 on 2009-09-17 at 1:35:.PM ; ; 86841676 2:12:.PM 2007-06-06 ????? - ?????????.ape ; 563 2:13:.PM 2007-06-06 ????? - ?????????.cue ; 914 2:12:.PM 2007-06-06 ????? - ?????????.log ????? - ?????????.ape EF8D2BD2 ????? - ?????????.cue FF6A3F53 ????? - ?????????.log 3EC1757B # Software: QuickSFV # Format: SFV ; Generated by QuickSFV v2.36 on 2009-09-17 at 13:46:40 ; http://www.QuickSFV.org ; ; 86841676 14:12.28 2007-06-06 ¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.ape ; 563 14:13.15 2007-06-06 ¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.cue ; 914 14:12.31 2007-06-06 ¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.log ¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.ape EF8D2BD2 ¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.cue FF6A3F53 ¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.log 3EC1757B # Software: Checksum+ # Format: MD5 9f144f323e2d1480c5cf7d89a367d2ed *????? - ?????????.ape 7c7ff7d4ddfead8d815dd57ef706314b *????? - ?????????.cue 004a5174e1def1f06ec996d102f9ad7e *????? - ?????????.log # Software: QuickSFV # Format: MD5 ; Generated by QuickSFV v2.36 on 2009-09-17 at 13:46:58 ; http://www.QuickSFV.org ; ; 86841676 14:12.28 2007-06-06 ¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.ape ; 563 14:13.15 2007-06-06 ¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.cue ; 914 14:12.31 2007-06-06 ¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.log 9f144f323e2d1480c5cf7d89a367d2ed *¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.ape 7c7ff7d4ddfead8d815dd57ef706314b *¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.cue 004a5174e1def1f06ec996d102f9ad7e *¥Ê¥¤¥È¥á¥¢ - ¥ì¥¾¥ó¥Ç©`¥È¥ë.log

It seems that the UNICODE characters didn't display well here. I have uploaded above SFV/MD5 checksums generated by both Checksum+/QuickSFV to MegaUpload. Sorry for inconvenience! [url]http://www.megaupload.com/?d=KJO4W3JK[/url]

Definitely I should find the way to make my own tests, as I don't find a reliable way to decode the quicksfv file. Seems there are some UTF-16 chars, but spaces, hyphens, dots and something else are left untouched... Maybe I shouldn't decode US-ASCII chars (ASCII 32 thru 126?) I'll take a look and let you know in this thread...

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.
