Windows File integrity checker


I came to know about windows version of file integrity checker ! (I’m not asking myself why now as earlier my lovable Fedora 10 gave me the power to run md5sum easily by command line).

So what is File integrity checker google it;
define: file integrity checker

What is md5sum google -it;
define: md5sum

Coming back to windows part FCIV is a command line tool to check the hashes of file.

The scenario could be you have downloaded some files and for some reason it doesn’t work! “its wiser to check the integrity of files after download” more wiser is also to download the files which gives some SHA (hash)values.

Where to download it from ; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841290/
