Integrity Checker runs as a service on your server watching your shares that you have selected for new and changed files. Whenever a file without a integrity stamp is located, it will be queued and automatically processed by the add-in. This process will be completed with no interaction on your part.

An integrity stamp is comprised of three separate pieces of information: file modification date, file size, and the SHA-1 hash of the file data, the integrity stamp information is then written to each file as an Alternate Data Stream (ADS). This Integrity stamp information will remain attached to the file when you copy the file to other servers and PC’s. (Note, some applications may delete the ADS when they write to an existing file. If the file remains in a folder watched by Integrity Checker then the integrity stamp will automatically be regenerated when the file is changed).
