Here is how to delete CRC SHA with no harm to your data

In this article you will find out:

  • everything you need to know about CRC SHA
  • how to protect your data

Are you ready? Let's read!


CRC stands for Cyclic Redundancy Check and is used in digital networks to check for random data changes. SHA is a secure hashing technology that the National Security Agency developed in 2010. It is widely used to determine the integrity of data downloaded from the Internet.

You should also know about special software for compressing files. The most commonly used one is 7-Zip. After downloading and installing it, users found a new entry in the context menu - CRC SHA, which was discussed above. You can find more entries like CRC-64, SHA-1 if you show the side arrow. Older versions of 7-Zip do not calculate CRC and SHA very quickly, and therefore, users sometimes use other tools to calculate CRC and SHA values in Windows.

Remove it from the context menu

There are times when users get in the way of the CRC SHA entry and want to remove it from the context menu. In such a case, keep in mind that the latest version of 7-Zip is much easier and faster to compute these hash values. To do this, add this entry to the context menu of a file or folder.

If your decision is final, and you still want to delete this entry, do so using the following guide:

Open the 7-Zip File Manager and hover over the Start Search box. Type 7-Zip and press Enter. In the new dialog box, go to the "Tools" menu, then click the "Options" button. On the new Settings page, go to the 7-Zip tab. Now, uncheck the "CRC SHA" checkbox under "Context Menu Items" and click the "Apply" button. This will confirm your action and carry out the change.

Note: While deleting the CRC SHA record, you may receive the message "The event could not be called to any of the subscribers", in which case you can click the OK button.
