Portable Hasher Lite is a software solution whose main goal is to aid you in calculating many types of hash codes for any file format and custom string, viewing and saving logs, and comparing two or more checksums.

Since this is the portable edition of Hasher Lite, you are not required to go through a tedious setup process. Moreover, the Windows registry is not going to be updated with new entries without your approval, and you can run in on any computer you are granted access to. The latter feature is possible by simply moving the program files to a USB pen drive and double-clicking the executable.

First and foremost, you should know this utility can help you calculate multiple types of checksums, namely CRC32, MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512, RMD128, RMD160 and ED2K.

It is possible to upload any kind of file type, with the help of an incorporated file browser or the “drag and drop” feature, as well as input a custom string and choose the hash code you want to calculate. The main window also displays the size, attributes, and created and modified dates of the added document.

Hash codes can be copied to the Clipboard, or they can be compared with just a click of the button. Logs can be brought up in a new separate window and they can also be saved to the hard drive as a SFV, MD5SUM or SHA1SUM file.

To sum up, Portable Hasher Lite is a reliable and efficient piece of software. It does not put a strain on the computer’s performance, as it uses minimal CPU and memory at all times. All tasks are going to be finalized in a timely fashion and our tests did not reveal any hangs or errors.
