Examples

Example 1: Get information about a disk

PS C:\> Get-AzureDisk -DiskName "ContosoDataDisk"

This command gets information data about the disk named ContosoDataDisk from the disk repository.

Example 2: Get information about all disks

PS C:\> Get-AzureDisk

This command gets information about all the disks in the disk repository.

Example 3: Get information about a disk

PS C:\> Get-AzureDisk | Where-Object {$_.AttachedTo -eq $Null } | Format-Table -AutoSize -Property "DiskName","DiskSizeInGB","MediaLink"

This command gets data for all of the disks in the disk repository that are not currently attached to a virtual machine. The command gets information about all of the disks, and passes each object to the Where-Object cmdlet. That cmdlet drops any disk that does not have a value of $Null for the AttachedTo property. The command formats the list as a table by using the Format-Table cmdlet.
