PS C:\Windows> ([datetime]$eevnt[0].TimeWritten) -format 'ddMMyyyyThhmmss'
You must provide a value expression on the right-hand side of the '-f' operator.
At line:1 char:37
+ ([datetime]$eevnt[0].TimeWritten) -fo <<<< rmat 'ddMMyyyyThhmmss'
#I also checked ([datetime]$eevnt[0].TimeWritten).GetDateTimeFormats() but nothing
