    I'm trying to hash some data and bumped into a problem.
    Code:
    Dim SHA512 As New SHA512CryptoServiceProvider
    Dim arrSHA512() As Byte
    arrSHA512 = SHA512.ComputeHash(arrData)
    Dim strSHA512Hex As String
    For Each bytArrSHA512Element In arrSHA512
      strSHA512Hex += Conversion.Hex(bytArrSHA512Element)
    Next
    arrSHA512 has 64 elements, which is correct.
    strSHA512Hex, witch is arrSHA512 converted to hex, only has 124 chars however, this should be 128.
    Any ideas why 2 bytes just seem to disappear?

    Thanks
