Hi, I don't know anything about your use-case but if you use a MD5 to check for errors or difference, it's normally not necessary to use the whole file. If you take the first 100KB of each file and make a MD5 the chances are very high to get a unique MD5. If the files are euqal for a lot of content, than just pick serveral 100KB slices. Robert
