NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade usnjrnl2csv -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade usnjrnl2csv -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

WARNING

This package is exempt from moderation. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

Description

Introduction

The journal is a log of changes to files on an NTFS volume. Such changes can for instance be the creation, deletion or modification of files or directories. It is optional to have it on, and can be configured with fsutil.exe on Windows. However, it was not turned on by default until Vista and later.

Details

The journal, if turned on, can be found in the directory $Extend and is named $UsnJrnl (this is not visible in explorer as it is part of the system files on NTFS). Actually it is an alternate data stream $J that contains the relevant data. This stream is usually rather large and can be several GB in size. Thus it may take quite some time to process, if filled up. The file is sparse, so preferrably use the ExtractUsnJrnl tool to extract it.

The structure is well known and very simple; http://www.microsoft.com/msj/0999/journal/journal.aspx

The tool supports USN_RECORD_V2 and USN_RECORD_V3, but not USN_RECORD_V4 (introduced in Windows 8.1 and not activated by default.).

The nice thing about it, is that it contains large amount of historical data.

From version 1.0.0.5, all structure members were included in the output.

The USN_PAGE_SIZE is configurable. The default value is 4096, and should be sufficient for most cases.

Timestamps are written UTC 0.00 by default, but can be configured to anything. The format and precision of the timestamps can also be configured, as well as the millisec/precision separator. See displayed examples in the gui.
