Windows 2003 R2 x 64 / File Hasing / Hashing Speed (MD5 or SHA1)
Posted on 2011-09-08
I have a client that needs to do a data migration from one SAN to another SAN. The way that i have been instructed to make this data (just flat files) migrate is to use RoboCopy or XCOPY - No other copy programs can be used at this point.
The client also wants to generate a hash on the source data directories and the compare that hash information to the copied data hasing will be done using FCIV.exe
The client has a Xeon 2.4 Ghz Based server (COre Xeon) and i wanted to know how long you think it would take for that server using fciv.exe to hash 1.3 TB of data?
