How to create a 1 GB file on Windows

Some while ago I wrote a how-to for the Debian. Yesterday I needed to do the same thing on Windows – create 1 GB file.

Here is how it’s done:

fsutil file createnew <1GB_file.bin> <1073741824>

<1GB_file.bin> is the filename, name it whatever you prefer

<1073741824> stands for size in bytes, Google might come in handy 🙂

Obviously it’s good idea to run it from the command line 😉
