About md5 Checksums and Digital Signatures

Md5 Checksums

The md5 sums offered on this page can be used to verify that your file downloaded successfully without corrupting in transit. These can be verified (usually on the command-line) using specific instructions for your operating system as detailed below:

Instructions for Linux
Instructions for Mac OS X
Instructions for Windows (2000 or higher)

In each of these cases, you can compare the output of the command to the md5 sum in the file (in the table, next to each download file).

Digital Signatures

The digital signatures on this page can be used to verify that your file was created by me, and hasn't been tampered with, either on the web server, or in transit to your computer. Checking these is more difficult, so I have decided not to include instructions here because they'd have to be very long to do it justice. Instead, please carry out a search on how to verify GPG signatures if you wish to learn how to do it.

As a programmer, I am inclined to say that you should always use both the md5 sum and the signature to verify your downloads, but the average user probably doesn't know how to; if you aren't concerned about it, don't worry too much about it.

Downloads For DDRescue-GUI

DDRescue-GUI v2.0.0

This is the latest-and-greatest version of DDRescue-GUI, and it's better than ever! It brings loads of improvements to all platforms, ranging from performance boosts, to an improved design more focused on security from the ground up.

See the corresponding blog post for all the details at https://www.hamishmb.com/blog.

NOTE for Linux users:

GetDevInfo needs to be installed before you can install this - head over to https://www.hamishmb.com/html/downloads.php?program_name=getdevinfo or https://launchpad.net/getdevinfo/1.x/1.0.2 to download it first.

Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 users need the Python 2 version, and everybody else will need the Python 3 version.

An alternate way to make this easier for Ubuntu users is to add my PPA to your system (see https://launchpad.net/~hamishmb/+archive/ubuntu/myppa).
