Powershell: Export-Csv gives only one result

Hi,

I have this script that shows the shares that are published bij DFS.
I want to pipe the output to a csv file. There are more than 40 shares in DFS, but the script places only one result into the csv.
Only if I add an "-append"at the of the Export-Csv line, I get all the results.
The problem to that is, the csv is not overwritten.
Can someone help me on this ?

Clear-Host
$search= "department"
$dfsroots=Get-DfsnRoot
foreach ($root in $dfsroots) {
write-Host $root.NameSpacePath
$check=Get-DfsnFolder -Path "$($root.NamespacePath)\*" | Get-DfsnFolderTarget | Select-String $search foreach ($path in $check) {
$path=$path.ToString().Replace('?','$') -split "="
$path=$path.Split(',')
$shares=$path[3].Replace(')','')
#Out-File -filepath "C:\Temp\Shares.txt" -InputObject "$shares"
""|select-object @{Name="Shares";Expression={$shares}}|Export-Csv C:\Temp\shares.csv -NoTypeInformation -append 
}
}

The script behaves exactly as it should.
In the loop you get exactly one share, and you export that to the shares.csv file.

If you want to clear the file, just put this at the top:
Clear-Content C:\Temp\shares.csv
