None that I know of: zero is normally a valid result in all systems.
About the best I can think of is that you add data to the checksum: maybe convert it to hex digits, so a zero checksum would produce "00" instead of '\0'
Why on earth do you think you need this?
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Hello, and I apologise if this question has been asked a billion times already. I just remembered I used to code for a living, and was idly wondering if that huge ...um... "mistake" has been fixed yet.
You know the one, where everyone has now moved on to fast but small SSD's and MS wants to dump about 50Gb of stuff on your C: drive, no options, so suck it up.
I actually quit programming because of that and now wear steel-cap boots and a hi-viz vest to make ends meet.
But I want to return to the stuff I love the most - coding.
Yup, I could choose another platform and IDE, but I don't want to.
Well, SSDs have grown in size and a 500 GB is within reach for most folks. The drive space that VS 2017 requires varies, depending on which features you install. I installed it for C# + WPF as well as UWP apps. It took about 8GB of my 500 GB Samsung SSD - virtually negligible.
I can highly recommend going for an SSD, as it just runs so much faster. I would not bother with any IDE other than Visual Studio 2017. And keep in mind the fully functional Community Edition is completely free.
You beat me to it! (I had to lookup vs 2017 typical footprint)
I really need to get with the times and move on from VS 2010. I use 2015 for a few projects, but dislike it due to load times/resource consumption. One of my new year resolutions is to install and start using 2017 instead of 2010/2015...figured the kinks should be worked out by now.
Plus VS2017 2nd latest update has project load on demand, so it doesn't take all week and load each project in the solution on startup, but it only loads a project when you want to debug or work on it.
