Can I be helped with changing the output of this script to either just csv or both csv and html output.

#requires -version 2.0
#use parameter  drive report to html.ps1 computer1,computer2 or a computer list file
#change file path and name on line 7 below to reflect name and  path of computer list file using.
#script will open web browser with current report when completed.
 
Param (
$computers = (Get-Content  "C:\Scripts\Computers.txt")
)
 
$Title="Hard Drive Report to HTML"
 
#embed a stylesheet in the html header
$head = @"
<mce:style><!--
mce:0
--></mce:style><style _mce_bogus="1"><!--
mce:0
--></style>
<Title>$Title</Title>
<br>
"@  
 
#define an array for html fragments
$fragments=@()
 
#get the drive data
$data=Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_logicaldisk -filter "drivetype=3" -computer $computers
 
#group data by computername
$groups=$Data | Group-Object -Property SystemName
 
#this is the graph character
[string]$g=[char]9608  
 
#create html fragments for each computer
#iterate through each group object
         
ForEach ($computer in $groups) {
     
    $fragments+="<H2>$($computer.Name)</H2>"
     
    #define a collection of drives from the group object
    $Drives=$computer.group
     
    #create an html fragment
    $html=$drives | Select @{Name="Drive";Expression={$_.DeviceID}},
    @{Name="SizeGB";Expression={$_.Size/1GB  -as [int]}},
    @{Name="UsedGB";Expression={"{0:N2}" -f (($_.Size - $_.Freespace)/1GB) }},

    @{Name="Usage";Expression={

      $FreeGraph=$g* ((100-$UsedPer)/2)

      "xopenFont color=Redxclose{0}xopen/FontxclosexopenFont Color=Greenxclose{1}xopen/fontxclose" -f $usedGraph,$FreeGraph

    #replace the tag place holders. It is a hack but it works.

      Select Log,MaximumKilobytes,MinimumRetentionDays,@{Name="Entries";Expression={$_.Entries.count}},OverflowAction |
      ConvertTo-Html | Out-String
$fragments+= $log
} #foreach computer
 
#add a footer
$footer=("<br><I>Report run {0} by {1}\{2}<I>" -f (Get-Date -displayhint date),$env:userdomain,$env:username)
$fragments+=$footer
 
#write the result to a file
ConvertTo-Html -head $head -body $fragments  | Out-File -append c:\Scripts\drivereport.htm

Not feasible the same way. The function creates two sets of data not related to each other: Drive data and event log entries. You can't combine two different datasets into a single CSV, because a CSV has a fixed structure - each record has to be of the same structure.

Of course we can create two different CSV files.

Will the two files be exported from the same script or is it two different scripts. The two files will do fine if that can be done. Thanks.

This creates two files (see last lines). The used/free graph is retained, slightly modified (as we don't have colors in CSV).
Param ( 
  $computers = (Get-Content  "C:\Scripts\Computers.txt") 
) 
 
#get the drive data 
$data = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_logicaldisk -filter "drivetype=3" -computer $computers 
 
#group data by computername 
$groups = $Data | Group-Object -Property SystemName 
 
#this is the graph character 
[string] $g = [char]9608  

$Drives = @()
$Logs   = @()

#iterate through each group object 
ForEach ($computer in $groups) { 
   
  #define a collection of drives from the group object 
  $Drives = $computer.group | Select 
    @{Name="Server"; Expression={$computer.Name},
    @{Name="Drive" ; Expression={$_.DeviceID}}, 
    @{Name="SizeGB"; Expression={$_.Size/1GB  -as [int]}}, 
    @{Name="UsedGB"; Expression={"{0:N2}" -f (($_.Size - $_.Freespace)/1GB) }}, 
    @{Name="FreeGB"; Expression={"{0:N2}" -f ($_.FreeSpace/1GB) }}, 
    @{Name="Usage" ; Expression={ 
      $UsedPer= (($_.Size - $_.Freespace)/$_.Size)*100 
      $g * ($UsedPer/2) + '.' * ((100-$UsedPer)/2) 
    }}
   
  #Adding log details..
  $Logs += Get-eventlog -list -ComputerName $computer.Name | 
    where {$_.log -eq 'Security'} | 
    Select @{Name="Server"; Expression = {$computer.Name}}, Log,MaximumKilobytes,MinimumRetentionDays,@{Name="Entries";Expression={$_.Entries.count}},OverflowAction
} #foreach computer 

#write the result to a file 
$Drives | Export-CSV -NoType C:\Scripts\DriveReport.csv
$Logs   | Export-Csv -NoType C:\Scripts\Eventlogs.csv

got this error first:

Missing '=' operator after key in hash literal.
At H:\scripts\drive_els_csv.ps1:33 char:11
+   $Logs += <<<<  Get-eventlog -list -ComputerName $computer.Name |
    + CategoryInfo          : ParserError: (:) [], ParseException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : MissingEqualsInHashLiteral
I removed plus sign here:

$Logs += Get-eventlog -list -ComputerName $computer.Name |

Then got this error:

Missing closing '}' in statement block.
At H:\scripts\drive_els_csv1.ps1:40 char:54

No, the += was intentional and necessary. But there was a closing brace missing.
