I don't have a WinMx installation to look at right now. Is that in the c:/programs/Winmx directory. I just moved and don't have my PC's up and running yet. Yes, I'm referring to my library hashes.

yes the file hashes are in library.dat or lib4.dat (lib4.dat has a different format and is only used by 3.54b4) ... it will be in the same directory as winmx.exe

Thanks Stripes! I like how WinMx stores its hashes in the programs directory vs the registry.  It makes it easy for me define exceptions while running in a virtual environment. I use Shadow Defender and I almost always run in shadow mode.  Since programs like Ares use the registry I have to rehash my files if I'm running in shadow mode. I actually have problems with Ares rehashing my entire library regulary even when I don't run in a virtual environment / shadow mode.  I do believe it's due to a bug with Ares that has been very annoying to me. I've never had that problem with WinMx hashing. I do have problems with file mismatches with WinMx's hashing due to it's skip block method.
