Using PowerShell

There is also a command in PowerShell
this is the most effective and simple method, because it does not include any type of coding. If you use PowerShell 4.0, there are cmdlets on the command line. This cmdlet is also known as “get filehash.”. Thanks to this command line, you can easily generate a hash file:

Get-FileHash -Path < file> - algorithm < name>
Get-FileHash -Path myfile.zip -algorithm MD5
