I am pleased to announce that I have just uploaded the latest version (2.0) of SigmaMD5 to hobbes. It is currently in the directory pubincoming but will be moved in the next few days most probably to pubos2utilmisc.
The filename is SigmaMD5v2.0.zip

SigmaMD5 Reads & Creates MD5 checksum files. Is compatible with the output of Linux GNU MD5SUM and can check the eCs CD's for correct data using the MD5 checksum list files on the CD's. Provides a clear visual indication of checksum status (error's etc.) as well as error sorting, file filtering and comprehensive logging facilities.
This version has a major enhancement:
The maximum number of files that can be handled in one batch is 1,000,000. It was 32,768
- There is also now a sort function added when generating checksums.
- If a network drive is disconnected (for example when selecting a drive) the program detects this and blocks the selection of this drive and gracefully avoids an extended wait while the system times on the non available drive.
- During sorting the selected files a progress dialogue is displayed.
The following languages are supported
Spanish - Help file is currently only available in English
If YOUR language is missing and you are willing to do some translation work then I will be only to pleased to incorporate your language in a future release.
