Get a Hash Value for a Directory with the Free Utility DirHash

You can get a free utility that will generate a hash value for a directory in Windows from the French company IDRIX. See the download page here: . The way you use it is pretty simple. The zip file that gets downloaded contains just one file - dirhash.exe . Extract that to a folder, and then in that folder press CTRL + SHIFT, right click and choose 'Open command window here'. Then enter the command dirhash, followed by the directory you are generating a hash value for, and then end with hash function you want to use. (DirHash gives you an option between MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, and SHA512 .)
