Converting the FileSystemObject's ShareName Property

Definition: Given a Drive, returns the name of the network share.


We’re going to take the easy way out on this one and simply use the FileSystemObject from within PowerShell:

$a = New-Object -ComObject Scripting.FileSystemObject
$d = $a.GetDrive("Z:\")

Here we’re creating an instance of the FileSystemObject by passing it with the -ComObject parameter to the New-Object cmdlet. We then get the drive that’s mapped to a network share by calling the GetDrive method. After that all we have to do is display the ShareName property.
