If you need to test file system load, test failover clusters, or need large dummy files otherwise, rather than creating new files and slowly filling them with random data, try this:
$filepath = "$env:temp\testfile.txt"
$sizeBytes = 5.75MB
$file = [System.IO.File]::Create($filepath)
# show dummy file in Windows Explorer
This code creates dummy files of any size in a snap and can be used to quickly create storage load. Just don’t forget to delete these files after use.
