comment Is it necessary to read every single byte to check if a copied file is identical to the original?
+1 Agree. It soooo much more likely that your hard drive gets broken compared to incidental collision of good hashing function (CRC32 is weak - also agree).

I think if you pick a good hashing algorithm, the 2. and 4. will not give you any real increase "equal" quality. Probably 1. is needed only for weak hash as well.

@MichaelBlackburn: I agree. I didn't make my self clear. I was thinking about 2 days for training and setting things up (setup repo, import code, etc.)
