Use PowerShell to get directory count, two sub folders deep.

I'm looking for a PoSh script that can check if a SubFolder exists 2 folders deep, if so, count the number of subfolders that are present.


Eg.

The basic structure should be
\\ServerName\Folder#\

We have a process where when documents are created, they are created under \\ServerName\Folder#\ in a \Temp\ directory and then flushed on process complete.  Unfortuantely, if the process does not complete, then the clean-up never happens

Eg.

\\ServerName\Folder1\
\\ServerName\Folder2\Temp\SubFolder1
\\ServerName\Folder2\Temp\SubFolder2
\\ServerName\Folder3\Temp\
\\ServerName\Folder4\Temp\SubFolder

Would return the following;
Nothing for \\ServerName\Folder1\
2 for \\ServerName\Folder2\
Nothing for \\ServerName\Folder3\
1 for \\ServerName\Folder4\

I'm assuming that "FolderX" really are folders, not shares on \\ServerName; just let the path point to the folder where the FolderX folders are.
Get-ChildItem -Path "\\SomeServer\SomeShare" | ? {$_.PsIsContainer} |
	Select-Object -Property `
		@{Name="Directory"; Expression={$_.FullName}},
		@{Name="CleanUp"; Expression={(Get-ChildItem -Path "$($_.FullName)\Temp" | ? {$_.PsIsContainer}).Count}}

Just a little thought to add to the above.

If specifying a UNC path for the Path parameter, this will only work if the current directory is in a filesystem PSDrive (rather than, for example, the registry).  If there's any possibility it might not be, then use:
 - Path 'Filesystem::\\SomeServer\SomeShare'

Also, if using PowerShell 3 or above, you don't need the filter
   Where-Object {$_.PsIsContainer}
Instead, add the -Directory parameter to the Get-ChildItem commands.

ie
$RootPath = '\\SomeServer\SomeShare'

Get-ChildItem -Path "Filesystem::$RootPath" -Directory |
	Select-Object -Property @{Name='Directory'; Expression={$_.FullName}},
		@{Name='CleanUp'; Expression={(Get-ChildItem -Path "$($_.FullName)\Temp" -Directory).Count}}

Thanks everyone.

And you're right oBdA, the example should have been formatted as //server/share/FolderX/Temp/SoOn
