This is the portable version of winMd5Sum - a tool that lets you find out the MD5 signature of a file. It can be seamlessly handled, even by inexperienced users.
Calculating an MD5 checksum value is necessary for checking the integrity of a file. For example, if you want to download a file from a website but are unsure whether it's fake or not, you can compare the MD5 hash values. If they match, the item's good to go.
Considering that this edition of winMd5Sum can be installed as a portable product, you can save it to a USB flash drive or any other removable drive, store it on any computer and directly run its executable file.
The most important aspect is that no new entries are added to the Windows registry and no files are left behind after program removal. Plus, you can always have winMd5Sum Portable with you when you're on the go.
The interface of the application consists of a small, standard window and an intuitive layout. Importing a file can be done with the help of the file browser or 'drag and drop' method. winMd5Sum Portable automatically calculates the MD5 signature and displays the value. After you input the secondary checksum, you can compare results (a message box pops up).
The straightforward utility puts little strain on the computer's resources, since it uses a very low amount of CPU and system memory. It instantly calculates the MD5 signature of a file and has a good response time. We have not come across any issues throughout our testing. Thanks to its intuitive layout, the app's features can be easily comprehended. Unfortunately, winMd5Sum Portable has not been updated for a long time.
