Diskspd.exe - Msg when IFI not available

I'm doing some work with Microsoft's relatively new DiskSpd.exe.

You can find this tool and documentation at the following link.

Diskspd, a Robust Storage Testing Tool, Now Publically Available

This will be one of my shortest blog posts ever :-)

Just wanted to leave a note that, if you use the -c option to create a test file and IFI (instant file initialization) is not available for the account running DiskSpd, you'll see this message:

Error adjusting token privileges for SeManageVolumePrivilege (error code: 1300)
WARNING: Could not set privileges for setting valid file size; will use a slower method of preparing the file

I like messages that make the situation clear :-)
