Property Value



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.
