Description

The Get-FileStorageTier cmdlet gets all the files assigned to a Storage tier on a tiered volume stored on a tiered Storage space, and the status of each file. A file that you assign to a Storage tier is called a pinned file. The possible status values are the following:

  • Not on tier
  • Completely on tier
  • Partially on tier

Examples

Example 1: Get status for a file

PS C:\>Get-FileStorageTier -FilePath "D:\DataFile06.txt"

This command gets the pinned file that you specify, and its status.

Example 2: Get pinned files for a volume

PS C:\>Get-FileStorageTier -VolumePath "\\?\Volume{6d6e000d-6038-11e2-be6d-806e6f6e6963}\"

This command gets the pinned files for the specified volume, and their status values.

Required Parameters

-FilePath

Specifies the full path of a file. The cmdlet gets the pinned file that you specify and its status.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)

-Volume

Specifies a volume as a CimInstance object. The cmdlet gets the pinned files for the volume that you specify, and their status values. To obtain a volume, use the Get-Volume cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VolumeDriveLetter

Specifies the drive letter of a volume. The cmdlet gets the pinned files for the volume that you specify, and their status values.

Type:Char
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VolumePath

Specifies the path of a volume. The cmdlet gets the pinned files for the volume that you specify, and their status values.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
