When checksums don't match...

When checksums don't match... Digital Archiving at the University of York. 2 February 2015.
Post about an example of files that had MD5 errors. Used various utilities to generate the check-sums for both MD5 and SHA1. One program showed a change, while another did not. However, when SHA1 was used, it showed that the files had different check-sums. Possibly an example of bit rot.
