member this.Force : System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter with get, set
Public Overridable Property Force As SwitchParameter
Property Value

Remarks

 Gives the provider guidance on how vigorous it should be about performing
 the operation. If true, the provider should do everything possible to perform
 the operation. If false, the provider should attempt the operation but allow
 even simple errors to terminate the operation.
 For example, if the user tries to copy a file to a path that already exists and
 the destination is read-only, if force is true, the provider should copy over
 the existing read-only file. If force is false, the provider should write an error.

 This is meant to be overridden by derived classes if
 they support the Force parameter. This property is on
 the base class to simplify the creation of the CmdletProviderContext.
