Hi all,

I am trying to put together a little script to check the last modified time of a user share and i keep running into brick walls Angry

essentially i have a share on a server with individual user shares, IE:


i am trying to get a report that will search each folder individually and report according to the example below

Username        LastWriteTime                  ItemSize
User 1              3/21/2012 6:05:33 PM     5.7 GB
User 2              3/18/2012 3:57:28 PM     1.3 GB


i have experimented with:

Get-ChildItem -Recurse | Where-Object { $_.PSIsContainer } | Sort-Object LastWriteTime -Descending | Select-Object Name,LastWriteTime -First 1

but this returns the subfolder name's information and recurse into all user shares so i will get an output such as

Name               LastWriteTime
Contacts          3/21/2012 6:05:33 PM

not sure what process i should take to get the desired output, any help or finger in the correct direction would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance

Try something like this

Get-ChildItem -Path "C:\PersonalData\MyBooks\PowerShell and WMI" -Recurse |
where { $_.PSIsContainer} |
foreach {
 $size = Get-ChildItem -Path $_.FullName -Recurse | measure -Sum Length | select -ExpandProperty Sum
 Add-Member -InputObject $($_) -MemberType NoteProperty -Name Size -Value $size

 $_ | select Fullname, LastWriteTime, @{N="Size(MB)"; E={[math]::Round(($_.Size/1mb), 2)}}
} | Format-Table -AutoSize -Wrap

You will need to change MB to GB in the select statement
