Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know how to created a large file (20M+) containing rubbish, one that cannot be opened by anything.

    There is method in my madness.
     
  2. msr

    msr LE

  3. A file can always be opened - depending on the editor and the privileges of the opening process.

    I assume you want to create a file in windows - based on that, then from a DOS window enter:

    fsutil file createnew some_file_name size_in_bytes

    eg

    fsutil file createnew jj_old_fart 25000000
