How to create an SFV file?

SFV, which stands for "Simple File Verification," is a program that checks the files you downloaded and matches them with the files that the creator uploaded. SFV checks the files a person has downloaded to find random corruptions; however, it cannot be used for checking authenticity in any useful way. WinRAR and Quick SFV are both free applications you can download and use to make SFV files.
