10.4: A free utility to check for complete network copies
Authored by: xSmurf on Apr 15, '06 07:06:11AM
A really good way to check if a large file was transferred properly is to use MD5 to create a hash of both files and see if they differ.
$ md5 file.one
then do it again for file two and look at both hashes.
