Suggestion: MD5 mb/s speed progress info

Post by *isidro » 2019-01-26, 21:03 UTC

It would be nice to have speed progress info (MB/s) when making a checksum file as in Copy.

Another very useful and time saving feature would be to add a checkbox in COPY dialog for generating a checksum file on dest while copying, that would provide a way to ensure data integrity on backups.

Using latest 9.21a, and neither of my suggestions seems to be there. MD5 progress bar is there, but MB/s progress isn't shown.
Verify after copy is not good for me, I need to have the full MD5 checksum file of everything copied to check integrity anytime in the future, and besides copy with verify will probably use data from cache instead of actual media so destination can't be guaranteed to be error free until reread and compared with checksum file.

There are percentage, file/total files and MB/total MB, so what is the benefit of MB/s here?

I know the MB/s of HD so that info on CRCcheck would enlight if bottleneck is on HD or on CPU. Also when speed decays I can discover slow sectors, or if PIO mode was engaged by windows, etc. It's more important info than the others.

My other suggestion is more necessary.

Then open a dedicated thread for that alone, please.

isidro,
I support both suggestions and also would say to open a new thread for the automatic hash file creation.
