compare md5 against string checksum
The "test" feature for copied files and the possibility to save the
generated checksum file are very good, but it would be even better if
TeraCopy would offer the possibility to check a file against a numeric
checksum (for downloaded files, for example).
Indeed, this is not
complicated at all to do manually (from creating a md5 file in a text
editor to using all sort of small utilities already available), but
exactly because is so simple, it should be implemented as a feature.
How I see it working:
Right click on the file: Windows Shell Context menu (or Submenu) "Check MD5" -> will open TeraCopy interface with a field that prompts for MD5 string value.
Benefits: - the most important benefit is to reduce "manual labor", after all this is the purpose of computers and software.
Where it would be useful:
- when downloading files from locations that offer the MD5 checksum for the file as a text, instead of a .md5 file, in order to ensure the download was complete and without issues.
