   -File <String>
   -Manifest <String>

Description

The Get-HgsTraceFileData cmdlet gets segments of Host Guardian Service (HGS) Diagnostic trace files recorded in a trace file manifest generated by Get-HgsTrace, as well as length information. This cmdlet is utilized by the Get-HgsTrace cmdlet to securely get trace files over a Windows PowerShell® remote session that does not expose other portions of the file system.

Examples

Example 1: Get the length of a trace file

PS C:\> Get-TraceFileData -File "Certificates.xml" -Manifest "Traces.xml" -Length

This command gets the length of the file named Certificates.xml file found in the Traces.xml manifest.

Example 2: Get a segment of a trace file contained in a manifest

PS C:\> Get-TraceFileData -File "Logs.evtx" -Manifest "Traces.xml" -StartByte 1024

This command gets a segment, in bytes, from the file named Logs.evtx if it is found in the Traces.xml manifest. If the file is not found in the manifest, this cmdlet returns an error.
