Utility to write huge files instantly??? by mike
Windows 2000, FAT32 or NTFS. For testing, I want a utility to create BIG files ~1GB on storage media quickly. Copying a big file is not an option, too slow. I don't care what's in the file as long as the OS is happy that it's a "valid" file. Needs to work thru normal OS drive letters and drivers.
