Tips and How-To


update, update-all, update-new

The native version of IntegrityChecker is officially deprecated. Please transition to IntegrityChecker java version (icj).

Updating files

The update and update-all and update-new command all update the validation files. The only difference is which files are processed.

In most cases, the update command is the best choice, but it can be useful to force an update of all files, or to update only new files.

You can update a single volume or a single folder with the GUI, or an unrestricted number of volumes or folders using the command line.

Running IntegrityChecker update / update-all / update-new

Using, choose volumes or folders. Then choose Update or Update All or Update New.

A file listing and summary information is presented.

Command line usage

It is recommended to leave the options alone. In nearly every case, the defaults provide the best performance.

update | update-new | update
	[--progress-interval|-p <seconds>] "1"
	[--buffer-size|-b <kilobytes>]     "2048K"
	--buffers|-n <count>]              "4"
	--threads|-t <count>]              "4"
	<path>[ <path>]*
