How to use the Integrity Checker PC client to verify integrity stamps

Integrity Checker runs as a service on your server.  The process is always running in the background and will quietly and efficiently watch the Shares that you select for new and changed files and attaches integrity stamps to these files.  You can use Integrity Checker to verify integrity stamps.  You can also use the Integrity Checker PC client to verify integrity stamps which are created by the Integrity Checker server
Open the Server Console on your PC and select the Download The PC Client Software link from the Common Tasks area.  The PC client supports Windows xp, Vista, and 7
A web browser will open to your Server.  Click the Download the Integrity Checker PC Client link to download the client installer to your PC.  After the download is complete, run the IntegrityCheckerClient.exe install-package to install the client on your PC
Run the PC Client from the Program Files\IntegrityChecker folder.  You will see the Integrity Stamp window.  This window will show you the current integrity stamp information (integrity date, file size, SHA-1 hash) in the upper portion on the window
If you have an existing 160bit SHA-1 hash (i.e. typically supplied for you when you download a large file from the internet) then you can enter the supplied hash in the ‘Your Hash’ text box and press the Compare button  to verify the integrity of the file.  If this fails then your file was probably downloaded incorrectly and you should retry the download from the original source of the file
You can also re-scan the file on your server to verify the file, as it currently exists, still matches the file as it was scanned by Integrity Checker in the past.  Press the Compare button to run this scan.  If this fails then your hard drive might be going bad.
