Hi,

I have never programmed before, I have only read python books.

I would like a tutorial if anyone can help which basically does the following....

  • 1, User selects a directory or drive
  • 2, press a scan button
  • 3, scans the directory for all files which have a specific md5 number (there will be a text file or something with a list of md5 numbers which will be compaired to the files it scans)
  • 4, if files are found with a matching md5 number, files are listed with descriptions
  • 5, once scan completes, items in the list can be selected
  • 6, delete button will remove any selected files from computer (not put them in recycle bin)
  • 7, optional log file can be created.

I know this is asking alot but can it be done, and can anyone point me to a tutorial(or write me one:) )

I dont mind the programming language used because i guess ill just follow the tutorial anyways.

thanks

Yes it can be done, no I don't have any tutorials on it. Which OS do you want to do this in?

I'd probably do it in Java, then.
