gci \\servername\e$  | ? {($_.psIsContainer ) -and ($_.name -like "ABC*")} | select Name | export-csv c:\file.csv -nti

Open in new window


Something like above should do

try dir | where {$_.PsIsContainer}


There's a great article here:

That goes deeper.

I need to edit
gci \\servername\e$ -recurse  | ? {($_.psIsContainer ) -and ($_.name -like "ABC*")} | select Name | export-csv c:\file.csv -nti

Open in new window

                                         
I forgot to recurse.

My script should give you just that, since we are using "select" to select only the name:

gci \\servername\e$ -recurse  | ? {($_.psIsContainer ) -and ($_.name -like "ABC*")} | select Name | export-csv c:\file.csv -nti

Open in new window

                                         
You can also substitute "Fullname" for "name"  if you want to get the full path.
