Verify MD5 hash value of file using batch script under Microsoft Windows from the command line

Hi all,

Here is a batch script snippet I coded this morning which allows you to verify the MD5 hash value of a given file.  I am posting this for prosperity.

The script assumes the md5 hash value is contained in a .md5 file and the naming convention appears as so:

example.zip
example.zip.md5

The .md5 file should contain only the hash value, which may or may not be enclosed in quotation marks.

Requires: Microsoft  File Checksum Integrity Verifier (FCIV)
URL: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841290


NOTE: This solution could easily be modified to support SHA-1 hash values.
:md5
for /f %%f in ('dir "*.md5" /s/b') do (
	set file=%%f
	for /f %%a in ('type "!file!"') do (
		set md5=%%a
		set md5=!md5:"=!
		set file=!file:~,-4!
		for /f "skip=3" %%b in ('fciv "!file!"') do (
			if [!md5!]==[%%b] (
				echo PASS: !file!
				echo MD5: !md5! vs. %%b
				echo.
			) else (
				echo !!! FAIL: !file!
				echo MD5: !md5! vs. %%b
			)
		)
	)
)

Open in new window

 Also, this requires setlocal enabledelayedexpansion to be previously executed.

Hi.

First of all, great script. I think EE could do some clever work with having a script repository.

A few questions/comments/ideas.

1 - Just in case there is a directory called something.md5, I would add /a-d to the dir line.

for /f %%f in ('dir "*.md5" /s/b/a-d') do (


2 - for /F will open a file without the need to TYPE it first.

for /f %%a in (!file!) do (


3 - When FCIV generates the hash, the output is the hash and the filename.

It may be useful to validate the name also. Whilst this is not always useful, knowing that the filename is different could be an issue.

Thank you RQuadling!  Those are excellent suggestions!  I really appreciate the feedback.

I've attached an enlarged snippet and it seems like your the man to ask about a question I have pertaining to it.

The question I have is pertaining to variable variables...  I was trying to set a variable flag to ensure duplicate files weren't processed and couldn't figure it out so I ended up writing a temp file instead.  I'd rather use a variable and save the disk I/O.

Is there a way of doing something like this...

if not [!!file!_flag!]==[true]     (
     echo processing !file!
     set !file!_flag=true
) else (
     echo !file! already processed.
)

If you remove the _!flag! bit entirely..

[2010/09/10 16:49:11] [Z:\] [\\richardquadling\scratch$ ] >SET C:\SomeFileFound=True

[2010/09/10 16:49:34] [Z:\] [\\richardquadling\scratch$ ] >SET C:\SomeFileFound
C:\SomeFileFound=True


So you can set any env var.

The chance of collision? As long as the FULL name is used, then none.
