Hi Experts, is there a powershell command to list largest files and folders under C:\ for a 2012 server core?

TIA

Hi,

I have used this article to achieve this in the past hopefully it will help you achieve what you need it to.

Bear in mind when using the above article to run the commands within powershell ensure you run Powershell as admin.

Thanks. Is there a way to store this info into a .txt file and obtain that file from the core server?

After running the Powershell script to list what you need, you would use

The below is the CMDLET also listed in the article to list file and folders and then output to a text file on the D drive.

The "Out File" part of the CMDLET is what exports the Powershell results to the text file.

Get-ChildItem "E:\" | Out-File "D:\FileLengthReports\Result1.txt"
