    You have several ways, i believe there are some empty files generator i've read it once.

    But what you could is encapsulate files into another.

    You can do so with a music in an image.

    If you are on linux box this should work fine:
    Code:
    cat /dev/urandom > /home/user/yourfile.txt
    It will put random data into you file.

    After a while press Ctrl-C to interrupt it (you can check the size from another terminal window)

    Whell i will tell what you want i think ;)
    in windows use fsutil(in prompt) to create a file of the size you want

    Code:
    fsutil  file createnew bigfilewithnothing 102555555
    the number in the size of the file in bytes!

    after you have created this put in the same folder of the file you need to increase size(i assume you are using .rar files)


    then use the copy command to put two files in one:

    Code:
    copy /b originalFile.rar+bigfilewithnothing nameofthenewfilewithbigsize.rar
    and you have a original file with more size with nothing ;)


    i hope this help you, and sorry for my bad english,.


    i made a small .bat file with these lines you just need to copy all and put in .bat file:
    Code:
    @echo off
    echo Write the file name you want:
    echo.
    set /p filename1=
    echo Write the Size in Bytes:
    echo.
    set /p filesize=
    fsutil  file createnew %filename1% %filesize%
    cls
    echo Write the Name of the file you want do increase the size (Remember to include the extension ex: file.rar):
    echo.
    echo.
    set /p originalfile=
    echo.
    echo.
    echo Write the new Name for the original file (Remember to include the extension ex: file.rar):
    set /p newname=
    copy /b %originalfile%+%filename1% %newname%
    del /q %filename1%

    Hi OP,

    create file increase.bat of whatever you you like the filename.

    Content of increase.bat:

    You can tweak it with the amount of times the script goes through loop by increaseing or decreasing value of COUNTER variable:

    %COUNTER%==1000

    example

    %COUNTER%==500

    or

    %COUNTER%==199321

    Version if you want the script to work until your memory ends or somebody interrupts the process:



    The file size will grow constantly until the process is terminated. You can check that by pressing F5 while browsing the folder the file is located in.
