Title: Archive tester - Tool to facilitate testing collections of archives, incl. FLAC
Post by: Thomas C. on 2017-09-24 10:02:13
"Archive tester" is a tool to facilitate testing of massive collections of mixed archive files such as *.7z, *.bz2, *.gz , *.rar *.tar, *.xz, *.zip, *.exe, *.r00/r01, *.z00/z01, *.001... and *.flac. I think that it may be useful to other people so I recently made it a little cleaner and made it available.

Originally, it tested *.rar, *.7z and *.zip files. Recently I include support for more types supported by 7z.exe, and the support for *.flac files. *

It is still a very fresh project and (constructive) feedback is welcome.

You may find it at: http://thomasconte.net/it/tools/archive-tester/


* You need to give it the path to flac.exe and 7z.exe in the Settings tab. Requires .NET 4.0+. Tested with 7z.exe 16.04 [64], flac.exe 1.3.2 win32/win64. UnRAR.exe is included in the application files.

Does it use FLAC files own md5 checksum tag or what does it check to know if they are alright?

The output of flac.exe test function. So it's flac.exe that is performing the largest part of the test, I guess it's using it's MD5 but "Archive tester" doesn't access it directly (I could give it a try for future versions but that is not planned for now).
