Hi,

I would like to test out certain behaviours with images who have the isCorrupted flag set. Is there a way (maybe a tool) to generate an image that has that flag set ?

Thanks,
Miguel

Hi Alex,

Really corrupted images. I would like to generate them myself if possible, with random corruption. I would like to gain more information into what types of corruptions there are, and which types can lead to loss of files and/or folders.

The way which I have used during my tests is to run some long running test application (transactions usage must be switched off) and then kill the application during random period of time. Sometime the image on which the application works becomes corrupted.

Thanks. Is there a way to determine which files and/or folders are impacted by the corruption ?

Do you have a set of corrupt images that you could share with me, and from which you have more information (e.g. which files or folders are corrupt) ?

Unfortunately we don't have such files ready at the moment. I am sorry.


Sincerely yours
