Hi Guys

Does anyone have an idea of how to work out if a folder is at the "end" of a folder structure?

Ie. it doesn't have any more folders in it?

Thanks

Dir *.
returns directory list.

standard last line is X Dir(s)  XXXXXXXXXX bytes free.

If you ran dir *. and checked the last line, 1st token against the value equal to 2, it should be at the end of the structure.  Assuming there are no hidden or system directories.

The following should work as long as you don't have any files WITHOUT extensions.

(get-childitem -filter "*.").count
if ($_count -ne $null) {
	Echo " Not last folder"
}
Else
{
	Echo "Last folder"
}

Open in new window
