What users are saying about digestIT 2004
"I've found this little piece of software a real gem."
"I've been using digestIT for a while &just wanted to say
thanks. It's very easy to use."
"I love the way DigestIT is integrated with the pull down menu
"It [sic] like it because it does MD5 and SHA-1 hashs and
integrates into Windows as a right-click context menu."
MD5 for Win32 introduced the "right-click and hash" interface to calculate a message digest without having to open a separate program. digestIT 2003 took it further by adding multiple file support, integrated copying and saving, and support for the SHA-1 message digest algorithm.
Introduce digestIT 2004, taking digestIT 2003 one step further by adding integrated verification support right in the same easy-to-use interface.
digestIT 2004 is recommended by the author of PGP & GPG: Email for the Practical Paranoid for checking hash signatures. On page 55 of the book, he says:
"GnuPG makes a Windows checksum calculator freely available on www.gnupg.org, but it's not as full featured as I would prefer. I like DigestIT 2004, a freeware program that integrates nicely into the Windows desktop."
The only issue of which users need to be aware is what is called the "2GB limitation". What this means is that the progress indicator will not properly display the file size and processing progress of files that are 2GB or larger in size. However, the final result displayed for such a file will still be correct.
