+ easy creation of hash files
You can create hash file by simply selecting the file/directory/volume, clicking on hash and confirming given hash setup.

+ supports all popular hashes and hash file formats
Supports MD2, MD5, CRC-32, SHA and many more hashes and md5, sfv and crc hash file formats.

+ easy checking of files, directories and volumes
Checking can be accomplished by simply selecting the file/directory/volume, clicking on Check and confirming given Check setup.

+ automatic detection of hash files during checking
If hash files are in default hash path they are automatically detected and used during checking. There is no need to manually pick the hash file. When multiple hashes are present the newest ones are used.

+ fast binary compare of files, directories and volumes
Compare is performed binary (bit by bit) and is optimized for simultaneous reading of two different sources. It outperforms majority of comparing software available.
Test results:
Comparing disk to CD: CDCheck 2:38, Windows fc 3:25, Test Path 10:34, burnc 2:39.
Comparing CD to CD: CDCheck 3:32, burnc 5:34.

+ audio support
Audio CDs behave like CDs with .wav files. You can create hashes, compare it, check it or recover it.

+ easy recovery
Recovery can be accomplished by simply selecting the file/directory/volume, clicking on Recover and confirming given Recover setup. For those that wish some additional control over recovery there are Advanced options to fine tune the setup.

+ supports Unicode file access
You do not have to worry if files/directories with strange names can be checked. CDCheck supports Unicode file access that can work with all file/directory names. For operating systems not supporting Unicode file access (Win95,98,ME) efforts were made to ensure reading of most (if not all) files is possible.

+ supports large volumes and files (>4GB)
Processing (checking, hashing...) can be performed on volumes and files larger than 4GB (limit of many programs).

+ detailed error reporting
Errors are reported in real time with filename where error was encountered and exact error message provided by the operating system or driver. All errors are accompanied with error code and error type. They are also colored depending on the error type for quicker overview.

+ detailed statistics
During work of a given process (checking, hashing...) statistics as numbers of files/directories processed, elapsed time, average transfer rate... are reported in real time.

+ custom sound settings
You can set different sounds for process completion, errors...

+ one-less-click
By setting an option or holding shift down you can skip process setup confirmation.

+ multi language support
CDCheck is translated to many languages.

+ CD/DVD Info
Complete information about CD/DVD media is provided including manufacturer, ATIP/ID code, type, capacity...

+ stability
A lot of effort goes to stability of CDCheck. Before each final release the software is tested through many beta versions. All reported bugs are resolved and fixes tested.
