Answer by  DreamScaper (354)

A hash check is simply a way to verify the file that you download hasn't been altered, corrupted, or changed from the original file posted. The hash is a unique fingerprint code describing the file. When you download the file, run a hash check, compare that unique fingerprint with the original to verify it's identical before continuing.
