The application can be used to generate checksum values to ensure the bit-level integrity of files after they have been copied to a new device.

Description[edit]

This application functions like a digitization Swiss army knife. The application allows a user to analyze the contents of a file system or external drive and generates statistics about the contents of the contained directories. The application can be used to generate checksum values to ensure the bit-level integrity of files after they have been copied to a new device. After a collection of files have been converted from one digital format to another, this application can verify that there is a one-to-one match of before and after files.

An updated version of this application is available. This version is maintained by the Georgetown University Library File Analyzer and Metadata Harvester V2.
