I have configured columns to not display MD5 values, but I have a button that will do this on RMB/LMB:
GetSizes NODESELECT MD5
Conveniently, this will also allow me to select files and then only calculate the md5sum of those.
max_md5_file_size in advanced options is set to 1
For situations where I DO want to see the MD5SUM of all files in a folder, is there a possibility for the above configuration to still (on top of the configurations mentioned) in some way exclude the calculations of files >x kb? I was thinking MD5 command could come with an optional value that would set such a limit.
Could you give a general recommendation/assessment for current hardware: Let's cautiously/conservatively assume a somewhat below average CPU of 2022 with e.g. 8 GB RAM, a slow budget SSD, and a lot of large files in various folders. -> What do you think is a general file size limit nowadays that makes sense to set as a limit for MD5 calculations?
