Parameters

-Credential

Note

This parameter is not supported by any providers installed with PowerShell. To impersonate another user, or elevate your credentials when running this cmdlet, use Invoke-Command.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Exclude

Specifies, as a string array, an item or items that this cmdlet excludes in the operation. The value of this parameter qualifies the Path parameter. Enter a path element or pattern, such as *.txt. Wildcard characters are permitted. The Exclude parameter is effective only when the command includes the contents of an item, such as C:\Windows\*, where the wildcard character specifies the contents of the C:\Windows directory.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:True
-Filter

Specifies a filter to qualify the Path parameter. The FileSystem provider is the only installed PowerShell provider that supports the use of filters. You can find the syntax for the FileSystem filter language in about_Wildcards. Filters are more efficient than other parameters, because the provider applies them when the cmdlet gets the objects rather than having PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:True
-Include

Specifies, as a string array, an item or items that this cmdlet includes in the operation. The value of this parameter qualifies the Path parameter. Enter a path element or pattern, such as "*.txt". Wildcard characters are permitted. The Include parameter is effective only when the command includes the contents of an item, such as C:\Windows\*, where the wildcard character specifies the contents of the C:\Windows directory.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:True
-LiteralPath

Specifies a path to one or more locations. The value of LiteralPath is used exactly as it is typed. No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes escape characters, enclose it in single quotation marks. Single quotation marks tell PowerShell not to interpret any characters as escape sequences.

For more information, see about_Quoting_Rules.

Type:String[]
Aliases:PSPath, LP
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies the name of the property or properties to retrieve. Wildcard characters are permitted.

Type:String[]
Aliases:PSProperty
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:True
-Path

Specifies the path to the item or items. Wildcard characters are permitted.

Type:String[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:True

Inputs

String

You can pipe a string that contains a path to this cmdlet.

Outputs

System.Boolean, System.String, System.DateTime

This cmdlet returns an object for each item property value that it gets. The object type depends on the property value that is retrieved. For example, in a file system drive, the cmdlet might return a file or folder.

Notes

This cmdlet is designed to work with the data exposed by any provider. To list the providers available in your session, run the Get-PSProvider cmdlet. For more information, see about_Providers.
