Windows 7: 3gb+ Test file

Hmm, I suppose I could write a quick C++ program to generate a 2 GB file full of garbage that you could run on your PC. Would save you a massive download.

Edit: I tested the code I wrote, and it generates EXACTLY a 2.00 GB file. You should be able to use it twice to get 2x2 GB

All it is a simple console app. On my machine, it wrote the file in less than a minute. Thus it should be a ton faster than downloading a file of that size. Beware: It might put a good load on your CPU and HDD.

Your PC will likely lag for a short time while it generates the file, but it is tremendously faster than downloading a file of that size. All it does is keep writing useless data to a file until it is 2 GB then exits.

If it lags your PC too much just close the window and it will stop.

Most likely yes but I'm more familiar with C++. I can post the source of it when I get a chance if that's what you're getting at.
