Opening MD5 files

What is a MD5 file?

Files that contain the .md5 file extension are checksum files that are used to ensure that the data within a file is complete and has not become corrupt. An MD5 file verifies the integrity of downloaded files, discs and disk images.

MD5 files use an algorithm that is based on the number of bits that a file should contain. The MD5 file format is used by the IsoBuster CD/DVD copying software to verify the integrity of the copies it creates as well as other software applications. However, there are certain applications that MD5 files are not suitable for, such as SSL certificate programs or digital signature file creation softwares.
