HashTFS file verification utility

HashTFS is a program that generates hash values to detect unwanted file changes or unauthorized file copies. HashTFS provides users with a powerful tool to identify and track changes to their digital files. The program can be used to ensure the integrity of files stored on your PC or attached (USB) storage devices. HashTFS is an essential tool for any organization that wants to maintain the accuracy and security of their sensitive data. It is easy to use and provides a reliable way to detect any unauthorized changes or copies of files.

Why perform file verification?

There are several reasons why you would like to know if files have been modified, or not. Modified files could be an indication of a security breach, a computer virus or infection with ransomware. Identical files could indicate duplicates: copyright violation, license issues etc. By verifying / comparing the checksum of files you can not only tell if a file has been modified, it can also be used to discover identical files.

One way to check if a file has been modified is to calculate a checksum for that file. When the content of the file is altered, its checksum will also change. This also works the other way round: two files that are identical will have the same hash value. HashTFS can calculate the checksum (hash value or digest) for a list of files as well as verify the checksum for those files. This way you can check wether the content of your files has been altered or if your files have been copied.
