Shareaza scans files and creates several different types of hashes such as SHA1, TTH, MD5, and CMD4. It takes Shareaza awhile to generate this information because minimal CPU is used for the operation. To increase the speed of this hashing, go to Physical, right click on the side panel and turn on Quick Hash. Although this will speed it up, it will also place a heavier load on your computer.
