Topic: Keeping digital data integrity is one of the rules of thumb for digital preservation. However, how do you know if your digital files are corrupt, missing, moved or renamed? We invite you to join us to learn how FIXITY will allow you to monitor and report on file integrity and attendance. How does it work? FIXITY - available for both Windows and Mac - scans a folder or directory, creating a manifest of the files including their file paths and their checksums, against which regular comparative analyses are performed. FIXITY then emails a report to the user documenting flagged items along with the reason for a flag, such as that a file has been moved to a new location in the directory, has been edited, or has failed a checksum comparison for other reasons. When run regularly, FIXITY becomes a powerful tool for monitoring digital files in in almost any storage location. Download and find out more about Fixity at https://www.weareavp.com/products/fixity
