With TurboSFV, you can validate the checksums of your files. Based on the previous stored values in the hash file, the checksums will be recalculated and the results reported.
Validate hash values via the Shell
TurboSFV LE: SignTurboSFV PE: SignTurboSFV CE: Sign
TurboSFV is integrated into the Windows shell. The validation process starts with a double-click on a hash file. Alternatively you can open the context menu of a hash file with the right mouse button and select "Validate".
Another option is to drop a hash file on the TurboSFV icon on the desktop.

OK: Number of files verified with a correct checksum.
Errors: Number of files where the validation failed.
Missed: Number of files not found based on the entry in the hash file.

Jobs: Number of completed validation jobs in relation to the total number of jobs.
Stop button: Cancels the validation process.

File progress: For larger files, a small progress bar informs about the progress.
Name: File name with a status image.
Size: File size as detected by TurboSFV.
Type: Hash type as detected by TurboSFV.
Hash: Checksum as indicated in the hash file.

The pre-filter controls, which files will be displayed during the validation. This allows to limit the number of files to be added to the list, for example only files, where the validation failed. This can be useful for large file lists, which, for example, you may get if you hash all files on a drive.
The available filters are in the range from all to no files. A small icon in the first column header indicates, that a filter is active.
Search and validate

Folders can be searched for hash files and the validation automatically starts for the detected files.
A separate menu entry allows to switch to a recursive search, which includes sub folders of the selected folders.
