I'm trying to get the 'uniqueid' of my disk via diskpart and get that output to a text file, and i'm running into an issue.  I'm able to use 'diskpart' and view the uniqueid, but when I try to pipe the output to a text file, the file get's created but it's empty.

I'm running this on Win-7 x64;

Here the command I run:
diskpart /s c:\test\disk.txt > diskid.txt


The file disk.txt contains these commands to run in diskpart:
select disk 0
uniqueid disk
exit


diskid.txt get's created, but is empty.


Any help?  Thank you!

If you run an elevated command prompt, it will work:
Accessories>Command Prompt>right-click>Run As Administrator

Hi arunykand,
Have you tried running the command prompt as administrator yet? I'm confident that will solve the problem for you, as I was able to replicate your exact problem here, i.e., the file is empty when the command prompt is run normally, but the file has the correct output when the command prompt is run as administrator (known as an "elevated" command prompt). Regards, Joe

There is definitely enough information to confirm an answer. I am 100% confident that http:#a39669909 is the answer. The problem is 100% reproducible. The file is empty when the command prompt is run normally, but the file has the correct output when the command prompt is "Run as administrator" (also known as an "elevated" command prompt). I'm certain that anyone reviewing this thread will have the same results. And any EE member with the same problem would be well-served to find this solution. Regards, Joe
