An excellent addon to DC++ would be some sort of CRC checker where it displays the code after checking the file. Or an even better idea is that if it doesn't display the code but simply checks the data with it, and decides appropriately what to do next. Are you aware of safe and compressed downloads?

I think this is more of a thing the OS should handle since its more of a file system specialty. For example, why do you want extra room saved? For administrative purposes?
