Hi, that's the approach I take. Use a random number generator seeded
with the filename for example. Pick some 100KB parts from those big
files and compare them with 'checksum. Repeat until you find the first
difference. The chances that you will hit the difference is quite high
if you always include the first and last 100KB.
