Checksum calculation screen in Bandura

Today we would like to present one of our new forensic functions in Atola Bandura 1.1.5 release.

Our new checksum (hash) function executes fast and accurate checksum calculations on both the source and target hard drives at once. Checksum calculation is a valuable feature to have on an imager, and being able to calculate both checksums simultaneously at high speed is a great time-saver. Checksum calculations (HDD hash values) are automatically saved to the attached USB flash stick after operation. Various algorithms are available to meet different procedural (forensic) standards.

Supported checksum algorithms: MD5, SHA1, SHA224, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512.
