SFV, which stands for "Simple File Verification," is a program that checks the files you downloaded and matches them with the files that the creator uploaded. SFV checks the files a person has downloaded to find random corruptions; however, they cannot be used for checking authenticity in any useful way. WinRAR and Quick SFV are both free applications you can download and use to extract files with the .SFV extension.

WinRAR

1

Download and install WinRAR (see Resources for download link).

2

Open the folder containing the SFV files you want to extract.

3

Select the files with your mouse and right-click on them. Then select "Extract Here." The files will be extracted to a new folder within the present folder they are in.

QuickSFV

1

Download and install QuickSFV (see Resources for download link).

2

Open the folder containing the SFV files you want to extract.

3

Double click the SFV file and QuickSFV will open it.
