What is the best way to verify (check sum / content) files after copying / moving?

 

I have read because of the buffer storing the transferred file(s) for a while verifying a file after transferring might check the content in the buffer not the physical file(s) on the drive.

I know you can compare checksums in WinRAR if that helps... sorry, more of a hardware guy myself. :P


Sorry if I snap at you. I can't stand stupid for more than 5 minutes at a time.
