About WinHasher 1.6.1

WinHasher is a utility to calculate the cryptographic hash of a file. A hash function is an algorithm when applied to a file generate a fixed number (hash) that is unique to that file.

If the file is changed, even by one byte, repeating the hash function will calculate a new hash.
