Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Flac.exe -V


How important the -V (--verify) setting is when ripping CD to FLAC with Exact Audio Copy -program?

I have ripped all of my CD -collection to Flac and I noticed that I haven't use the -V setting.

Do I have to re-rip all those CDs again with -V setting enabled or is it waste of time/useless?

There are many guides How-To-EAC-FLAC and "all" of them say that -V option is recommended, exept this:

[...] and output verification is unnecessarily enabled (-V): -6 -V -T "ARTIST=%artist%" [...]

I have Exact Audio Copy v1.1 with flac.exe v1.3.1.

So, no need to re-rip, unless bad hardware (hidden) or paranoia ;)
