Download size

Downloading the Zorin 17Pro ISO in Zorin 16.3 results in a 6.9GB file. Downloading the ISO in Windows 11 results in a 6.4GB file. Corrupt file? Half a gig is a lot of data...

I suggest you test the SHA256 checksum of the downloaded .iso file against the published value.

Zorin OS Pro and Pro Lite includes a lot of extra software and perks and is much beefier than Zorin OS Core and Lite.

Your Zorin download in Zorin will most likely be the correct/unmodified one. In Zorin, open your terminal in Downloads. Then type: sha256sum [name of Zorin iso], as you type the name of zorin iso you can hit tab to autocomplete it.

Match it to the posted hash for your version of Zorin: Check the Integrity of Your Copy of Zorin OS - Zorin Help

You can navigate to the Windows file for the same check while in Zorin, if the drive is mounted and accessible to Zorin.

And if you would like to check the file on Windows as well:

  1. Open PowerShell
  2. Type Get-FileHash and a space
  3. Drag the file from your download folder to the command and let go
  4. Hit enter



As Windows cannot see or interact with ext4 FSs by default, I was providing a way to check both without rebooting.
