Perfection is when there is nothing left to take away
File Integrity Tracker (fit)

Last month I ended up copying thousands upon thousands of files, while recovering my data from ReFS volumes turned RAW, because Microsoft quietly dropped support for ReFS v1.2 on Windows 10. During file recovery, I was trying to be careful and flushed the volume cache after every significant copy operation, but a couple of times Windows just restarted on its own and I faced a bit of uncertainty on whether data in all files safely reached the drive platters or not.

I used a couple of file integrity verification tools in the past and thought it would take some time to read all files, but otherwise would be a fairly simple exercise. However, it turns out that everyday file tools don't work quite as well against a couple of hundred thousand of files.
