Script to find and copy a file to a network share

hi, i need to run a powershell script that will find all *.sh files on a PC and then copy said files to a network unc changing the name to be the pc it came from.

I have come up with this which finds the files

dir -R c:\*.* *.sh -file | where length -eq 1226

Is there a way to do the copying?

thanks

will you be running this from the PC's themselves or do you want to do this remotely for a list of PC's?

If you are running from the actual computer then this will work

$source = "C:\"
$destination = "\\youruncpath\$env:COMPUTERNAME"
New-Item -ItemType directory -Path $destination
Get-ChildItem -Path $source -recurse | Where-Object { $_.extension -eq ".sh" } | Copy-Item -Force -Destination $destination

Open in new window


For running remotely for multiple computers

$computers = Get-Content C:\Listofcomputers.txt
foreach ($computer in $computers) {
$destination = "\\youruncpath\$computer"
New-Item -ItemType directory -Path $destination
Get-ChildItem -Path \\$computer\C$ -recurse | Where-Object { $_.extension -eq ".sh" } | Copy-Item -Force -Destination $destination
}

Instead of
Get-ChildItem -Path $source -recurse | Where-Object { $_.extension -eq ".sh" }
I suggest you substitute
Get-ChildItem -Path $source -Filter *.sh -Recurse
It should be much faster.

For size, you may be able to do something like this, the size or "length" is measured in bytes.

Get-ChildItem -Path $source -Filter *.sh -Recurse | Where {$_.Length -gt 1024}
