Project Description
BD File Hash is a convenient file hashing and hash compare tool for Windows which currently works with MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512 algorithms.

The goal behind BD File Hash is to have a super simple to use hashing tool which doesn't force you to copy/paste hash strings between documents and applications to match them.

Tell us (Only 1 question): how often do you verify file hashes?

Please comment or rate this application to help it grow and develop into a more useful tool.

Functionality List
  • Create hashes using MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512
    • Please suggest any others you may need
  • Right click a file and "Send To" BD File Hash
  • Parses the hash string from a text file (no copy/pasting from a text editor)
  • When you hash a file, a similar named text file will be scanned for a hash value and written to compare hash field
  • Compare two files with just a few clicks
  • Save a default hash type
  • Hash any string of text by pasting it into a text field
  • New Send current hash value to Virustotal to check the file against their virus reports
  • Other user options see Screen Shots

Looking for your help!
There have been inquiries on adding a batch mode to BD File Hash. I certainly understand the usefulness of such a feature, I am just not positive on the most useful way to implement it. A few thoughts:
  • What types of outputs, CSV, Excel, tab delimited, MS Access, other db file?
  • Hash a whole directory of files to a text file?
  • Compare a directory of files with a file of hashes?
  • compare two directories?
Suggestions and comments will be helpful to create this new feature. If you have any ideas or suggestions please add them to work item, Batch Mode Hashing, which is being used to manage this task or discuss the options in discussion Methods to add batch hashing mode.
Thank you for your help in improving this application!
