I recently needed some files for testing purposes and I wondered if there is a way to create such files with PowerShell.
And of course, there is.
# Create a 1 GB test file with PowerShell $path = "c:\development\testfiles\a-hugh-1-gb-file.avi" $file = [IO.File]::Create($path) $file.SetLength(1gb) $file.Close() # Let's grab that file $item = Get-Item $path
That’s just an example of how to do this. Best would be to make it configurable and create files of various size. And also directly upload the files to a SharePoint document library.
As soon as I have done this, I’ll update this post.
