I'm working on something for University, and i need to do some statistics. I just need to know the sizes of the files on a certain number of systems, so i wrote this little program. I need you to run the app and give me the "log.txt" output file. Just that. Since the cdisk is still broken, you can send me the output to poncheibiza@hotmail.com.

Oh, only Windows systems, if you get any errors, don't bother and forget about this.

Please contribute
Thanks in advance!!

Hmm... Are you sure this isn't a double-blind experiment, where the real goal is to see how many people will be willing to run a random executable off the internet, with the word 'logger' in its title? : P

Really though, is there any source code available for this mystery logger that presumeably scans all our files and creates some sort of log about them? More details would be welcomed. : )

Oh sure! I'll run it!

Suspicous cat is suspicous.

Ran it in Sandboxie, didn't seem to do anything evil, so I'm dispatching you my log.txt.

Heh, yeah I've run lots of programs from Ponche in the past, so I wouldn't really be worried. I just wasn't sure how long it would take to scan. Does it check the size of all files on the hard drive? Across different partitions? What kind of output does the log contain? I'm just curious about having some more details before running something that might take a while to perform its task.

The app just scan over all logical partitions, and write the size of each file into the log.

Nothing really evil .

I know it seems suspicious at first, sorry. I forgot to put the source into my flash memory yesterday, but i'll upload it tomorrow. Here is the Linux version if any of you have it installed in your computer and make extensive use of it, because i need heterogeneus data, so if you don't use it to much then it will be (probably) in a very similar state than when you first installed the system.

Here is the source code, just compile it and run:


Cryo: it should take 1 or 2 minutes more or less.

Actually, it look about 1 or 2 seconds, more or less. : )
