Hi All,

Just need PS script which will display me all files and their paths in second column for example on some hard drive.
Lets say that I have "C:\" hard drive and i'm interesting to see all files with their paths.

I find out this code:

$Path = "d:\backups"
$a = get-Childitem $Path -recurse | format-table -group{$_.Path} name, directory -autosize

but it works only for backups folder, when I replace it to "d:\" it doesn't work I get message: WARNING: column "directory" does not fit into the display and was removed.

So folks, what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks for answer in advice.

Best Regards.
