This tool was written to investigate what part of partially cached files are present in App-V 5. It provides deep detail on a per file basis -- not only how much is cached but also which parts!
No installer, just an exe. Point it at a package folder and hit the button.
Here is an example screenshot:
Just mouse over the OnDisk entry when you see a mismatch and it lists which portions are present.
What is this Sparse stuff?
App-V uses a basterdized version of Sparse files. This will be explained in my new book when it comes out.
What does Test_Directory cost?
TMurgent believes in giving back to the community. Test_Directory is free for use by all.
What OSs will it run on?
The tool will run on Windows XP and above. There is only a 32-bit version of the tool, but it works equally well on x64 systems.
How do I install these tools?
No installer. Just download, unzip, and copy the exe somewhere convenient.
Are there more free tools?
TMurgent has a bunch of tools on this page. Usually they are free, unless you are a Software Vendor.
Here is a link to the ZIP package: Test_Directory.zip (size 1.7MB )
Where Can I buy the book to learn more?
The book, when completed, will be published through Lulu and you can find it from this page when published.
