    Today i want to show you easiest way to check MD5 of your files. We gonna use program HashTab for that, why is easiest? Beacause is integrated with windows shell. No need to use external program to generate checksums. And on Windows is free for personal use.

    You can select which checksums will be generated (CRC, MD5, SHA and many more), just click setting on HashTab and select. Program is compatibile with Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP and MAC OS X 10.7 or later, but on MAC is not free :( but still is best/easiest solution.

    i have a nice tool for people who are in console window often. it grabs md5 of a file or you can feed it a directory and it will return md5 of all files in the directory, if anyone is interested let me know and ill send a pm with a link
    This is a nice tool though. thanks for sharing btw :)

    sent it. like i said in the pm, just slap it in your c:/windows/system32/ folder and then go to any directory and open console, then just type in "md5 foldername" or "md5 filename" without the quotes ofcourse.
    it will return single file md5 OR md5 list of all files in a folder

    you can also redirect the output to a file easily

    download hex editor HxD, analysis, checksum = done for virtually any checksum. and, if ur going with a pkg, copy the last two lines in hex, generate the checksum as mentioned previous. if it's the same as the last two lines, ur good.
