Case Sensitivity Problem with Hashlist Import

This is to let users know that a bug has been identified with the "Load Hashlist" feature regarding case sensitivity. This effects v3.0.2. From user reports I expect this problem to not impact on many users because the few who have used this feature will most likely have imported uppercase values anyway. But there may be a handful of people, like the person who posted the linked comment above, where that is not the case. If you have never used this feature, there is no problem for you. If the hash list you are importing is uppercase there is [...]

QuickHash v3.0.2 released for all platforms

I am pleased to announce the release of v3.0.2 of QuickHash for Windows, OSX and Linux. This is a maintenance release that addresses several bugs; one of which was quite important. As reported HERE , a user pointed out that path lengths were being truncated over a certain length. He rightly thought it was due to the Windows MAX_PATH value, but in fact it affected all values over 128 characters. This was a bug introduced with v3.0.0 which had not been noticed as most users probably wouldn't have been impacted by this. Nevertheless, there will be users who were. It [...]

QuickHash v3.0.0 Is Out Now!

Well I know now why I kept putting off the integration of QuickHash with SQLite! It started in October, and has taken me 4 months to finish! To say the work has been quite monumental would perhaps be putting it mildly. Don't get me wrong - the user won't notice an enormous difference in terms of the interface. On the whole, its still very much the same, but the number of changes, fixes, improvements and its integration with SQLite have meant enormous re-writes of existing code and writing of several new units. In addition, I've tried to get round to [...]

Long Awaited New Feature – Existing Hash List Import and Lookup

For a few years, users have asked "Is it possible to have Quickhash import a list of existing hashes and then have it flag files that are known or unknown to the hashlist?". And for several years I have replied with "One day, I will add that. You're not the first to ask". Well, I am pleased to report that with a little free time over Christmas and an hour here and there, I have, at last, managed to add that functionality! The new beta2 of v3.0.0 (just released) has a "Load Hashlist" tick box which, when clicked, displays [...]

YAFFI – Yet Another Free Forensic Imager

The development of QuickHash v3.0 continues as per my previous two announcements. But, as excited as I am about QH v3.0, I have other programming projects going on too, and one had been neglected for a while called ‘YAFFI’. YAFFI is a disk imager that I first made for a bit of fun back in 2015 but it has since been left abandoned pretty much and I wanted to kick start its development again. Now, lets be clear here : this is not just a front end for an existing open-source imager! I wrote the thing from scratch!! It [...]

v3.0.0 Is Nearly Ready!

As I reported a few weeks ago, I've been working hard as often as I can on v3.0.0 of QuickHash that now utilises SQLite technology. It's been a massive task - much bigger than I first thought. It's taken me nearly two months of late nights and weekend work to get the beta nearly ready for release. It's been a major re-write and lots of new options have been added by means of right click menus and so on, which SQLite has allowed more easily than earlier versions. Simply things like the ability to sort on individual columns but [...]

Coming soon…v3.0.0…with SQLite technology!

Those of you who regularly follow the site may have thought things were quiet lately. Behind the scenes, I have been working hard on something I have wanted to do for about 18 months, and that is to convert QuickHash for use with SQLite. SQLite, as you probably know, is a very fast and powerful (but also fairly simple) database technology. It gives you all the benefits and power of a traditional relational database like MySQL, Firebird, Oracle and so on but without the enormous server overheads, user connectivity issues and, in some cases, licensing issues. With SQLite, developers [...]
