If you're a macOS or Linux user, you will need to add the mono prefix!

mono compaire.exe [Path1] [Path2] [Algorithm] [Parameter]

Algorithms

Currently the following algorithms are integrated:

Algorithm
MD5
SHA1
SHA256
SHA384
SHA512

Parameters

Parameters are alternative modifications of the program execution and output:

Parameter Impact
/l Create a log file of the current session
/m Generate a seperate file (.sums extension) which includes checksums of files in the master folder
/r Recursive comparison (include subdirectories)
/s Skip missing files automatically (don't show prompt for alternate path)

FAQ

Why did I wrote the tool ?

I am using encrypted NTFS volumes from VeraCrypt simultaneously on Windows and macOS and experienced corrupt files.

In order to prevent possible data loss due to errors with the file system, I wrote the tool to verify both records automatically by their checksums.

But there are also other purposes that may be useful to you :)
