Specifying Drive letters with fio for Windows.


Simple fio file for using Drive letters on Windows.

This will create a file called “fiofile” on the F:\ Drive in Windows.  Notice that the specification is “Driveletter” “Backslash” “Colon” “Filename”

In fio terms we are “escaping” the “:” which fio traditionally uses as a file separator.

To run IO to multiple drives (Add the group_reporting) flag to make the output more sane.
