TestingDriveThru: Challenge from last week - Finding Zero Kb files from the files directory

TestingDriveThru: Challenge from last week and How I dealt with it.


Challenge: Finding Zero Kb files from the files directory

  • Windows+R = Run : Enter "Powershell" and Hit Enter
  • It opens the Powershell
  • It shows Current directory: PS C:\Users\srinivas.kadiyala>
  • Navigate to the directory where files are stored and where we want to find Zero Kb Files.
  • Use command: CD C:\Users\srinivas.kadiyala\Downloads\FolderTest\   and Hit Enter
  • Now Current directory will be: C:\Users\srinivas.kadiyala\Downloads\FolderTest>
  • Now copy the below script and Hit Enter:
Below scripts helps you to find files with zero file size.
  • Get-Childitem -Recurse | foreach-object {
     if(!$_.PSIsContainer -and $_.length -eq 0) {
     write-host (“{0} -> {1}” -f $_.FullName, $_.Length)
     }
    }

Result: It will display files which has 0kb.
C:\Users\srinivas.kadiyala\Downloads\FolderTest>DocumentTest.docx -> 0

This can reduce the testing time.
