You could simply use md5sum. First keep a copy of the current checksum: md5sum /path/to/files/* > /path/to/safedirectory/checksum Then you can run the following to check for differences: md5sum /path/to/files/*|diff /path/to/safedirectory/checksum - An alternative proposed by @Jedi is to use the -c option: md5sum -c /path/to/safedirectory/checksum
