SFV files contain CRC32 checksums which can be used to determine wether or not the files listed were downloaded correctly. So, after downloading a set of files, you can use a program like DupeNuker or ezCRC to calculate the CRC32 checksums and then compare them to the checksums in the SFV file. If they match, then everything was downloaded perfectly.
If you open an SFV file with Microsoft Word, or any other word processor that can run scripts, it is possible that a virus in the SFV could get you. When downloading text files, it always a good idea to open them with a bare-bones text editor like NotePad on Windows and TextEdit on the Mac, both of which come free with your computer.
PLZ say thanks if it helpful.
