Force Underscores

Hedge has a hidden feature that allows for forcing underscores in the file name of the logs:
Mac
Windows
Set using Terminal command:
defaults write nl.syncfactory.Hedge.Mac SFIDefaultsForceUnderscores "1"
Set via the Registry:
  • Location - Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Hedge
  • Key - ForceUnderscrores
  • Type - String
  • Value - 1

Extra Log Location

Hedge has a hidden feature that allows for setting a secondary transfer log location:
Mac
Windows
Set using Terminal command:
defaults write nl.syncfactory.Hedge.Mac SFIDefaultsExtraLogLocation "/path/of/your/choice"
Set via the Registry:
  • Location - Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Hedge
  • Key - ExtraLogLocation
  • Type - String
  • Value - C:\the_path_you_choose

Media Hash Lists

When enabled, Hedge creates a Media Hash List for each transfer (.mhl file) with the checksums (a.k.a hashes) of all transferred files. This .mhl file can be used to re-verify your data at a later stage using the Checkpoint application.
More information on media hash lists can be found on https://mediahashlist.org.
Don't want Transfer Logs and Media Hash Lists on your destination? You can turn this feature off in Hedge's Preferences > Transfers > Logging (or on Windows: Settings > Transfers > Logging).
When Hedge's Checkpoint feature detects a Media Hash List on your Source, it will use those checksums as a reference instead of doing an extra Source Verification source read.
