TurboSFV provides various tools for the analysis of the validation results.

You can use filter in order to get different views on the results. You can export the results to a file or create a simple file list. You can easily detect changed, missed and new files and can create an updated hash file.

With the tools provided, you will learn what's going on in your folders.

Examining the issues in case of a huge list can be a problem. TurboSFV provides various options, which simplifies this task. One option is to sort the list by a specific column.

Filters can be used to view only a group of files. A checkmark indicates, that files falling in this group are displayed. The filters can be combined in any way.
OK: Validation succeeded.
Previously checked: Validation succeeded in a previous validation operation.
Failed: Validation failed.
No access: The underlying operating system denied access to the file.
Missed: The file as indicated in the hash file couldn't be found.
Warnings: Erroneous lines in the hash file, not computable.
Not validated: The validation process was canceled.
New: Files which were added since the creation of the hash file are tagged as new.
For example, by unchecking "OK" and "Previously checked" the following list is displayed:

It's possible to remove files from the list, which can't be picked up single-wise by a filter. This can be useful for exporting a list to a file, without a specific file.

After failed files have been replaced or missed files added, the validation can be repeated:
All: All files listed in the hash file will be validated again.
Not OK: Only files, which failed for any reason, will be checked again.
Different location: Revalidate from a different folder, if relative paths are used.
If you have loaded the hash file without starting the validation, you can also use this functionality for validating the files afterwards.
Find new files

Detecting changed and missed files is one thing, finding new files which were added to the folders since the creation of the hash file is another important step to get a complete picture:
Search recursive: Sub folders of the selected folder will also be examined.
Use filter: While searching for new files, the file filter will be applied.
Search in folder: Opens the folder selection dialog.
New files will be added to the list and a checksum will be calculated.
Export results
