Q&A's are give-and-take. When you ask a question, you give your research and thoughts, and yu take the answers. If you give little, you get little. If you give a lot, you get a lot. aaronbell‭ about 1 month ago

Relevant Q&A to provide some insight about how hashes are used in picture comparison: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4853185/how-does-comparing-images-through-md5-work Alexei‭ about 1 month ago

We can't know how explorer uses these hashing functions to find "similar pictures", nor do we know what "similar" means in this context. Since we don't work at microsoft, we don't know what they are doing any better than you do. meriton‭ about 1 month ago
