    computing the CRC of more than 20 000 files

    Hello

    I would like to use the utility codec that compute the CRC for my whole MP3 music collection (probably more than 20 000 tracks).

    Which method would you recommand ? Is dbpoweramp robust enough to compute the CRC on all tracks in one time ?

    Then I would like to load the CRC in a database. I don't know if excel is robust enough to handle about 20 000 tracks. What would you advice to load the CRC in a database or in an excel file ?

    Regards,
    DJMan

    20,000 files are no problem, and Excel can handle 200K without issues (perhaps even 2M)

    I have made a very small test with 22 MP3 files.

    I have used the batch converter.

    The CRC and MD5 computation took about 11 seconds by file, so I can expected about 11 hours for my 20 000 tracks collection.
    I have a very slow computer.

    Sometimes filenames have caracters like , etc. Is it OK to save the file generated by dbpoweramp in UTF-8 ?

    Yes you can save as UTF-8 or unicode.
