The Faker...

A little-known feature of NTFS on Windows 2000 and later is sparse files. A sparse file is a file with a section marked as being null. Under NTFS, this results in no space being allocated for the marked section. This can results in a large file occuping as little as 128 kilobytes of disk space.

The Faker creates sparse files.
