This free tool aids in the conversion and testing of folders containing flac, shn, and wav files and the generation of md5, ffp, spec, and DigiFlawFinder files. The design allows for the easy conversion, testing, and processing of a single folder to a batch of all the folders on one or more hard drives.

There are other programs available from other sources which can be used to perform many of the same tasks, but they can require much more operator interaction and time. Still those programs will be adequate for most users' needs. Very heavy or advanced users though may benefit from using ShnFlacWav.

Potential users of this program are those who can take advantage of batch processing. For example, the batch processing automates the overnight testing of the folders on your storage media such as hard drives. That allows you to early detect media failures and create another backup from your backup before that also fails. Other users will appreciate the interaction with the MyChecksums and DigiFlawFinder programs. And those who store their collection in flac or shn format but listen or do analysis in wav format may find a productivity advantage using this program to perform that conversion to wav.

This looks interesting. I'd give it a go, but I don't want to join ANOTHER online group to access it. :hmm:

Thanks, you are right, yahoo has changed since I started the group and now requires a membership to get to the groups files and messages. I guess they want more add revenue.

If you pm me with an email address, I will try to email you the 802kB zip file. If that does not make it to you, I can send you a torrent file.

Also if you want to wait a day or so, I will try to have a direct download link on the help file.

I have nothing but praise for TLH. You, or anyone else, don't need to change. It would be nice to have a different program to use when needed though. :wave:
