The below script has capability to search files more than 50GB in size under the path F:\Lotus\Domino\Data, but its not giving the complete path where the file exists. For example one of the file is under a sub-folder it still shows was found under F:\Lotus\Domino\Data... If any one can help me to add what is missing will be of a great help and I need this ASAP. Also I want to understand the complete script how it works.
Please help me friends.

$ServerFile = 'C:\Temp\Servers.txt'
$LocalFolder = 'F:\Lotus\Domino\Data'
$FileSize = 50 * 1GB
$ResultFile = 'C:\Temp\FileSize.csv'
Get-Content $ServerFile | ForEach-Object {
      $ComputerName = $_
      Get-ChildItem "\\$_\$($LocalFolder.Replace(':', '$'))" -Recurse |
            Where-Object {$_.Length -gt $FileSize} |
            Select-Object -Property `
                  @{n="ComputerName"; e={$ComputerName}},
                  @{n="Name"; e={"$($LocalFolder)\$($_.Name)"}},
                  @{n="SizeMB"; e={[math]::Round($_.Length / 1MB, 3)}}
} | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path $ResultFile

If you want the full path then use the fullname property instead of name.

$ServerFile = 'C:\Temp\Servers.txt'
$LocalFolder = 'F:\Lotus\Domino\Data'
$FileSize = 50 * 1GB
$ResultFile = 'C:\Temp\FileSize.csv'
Get-Content $ServerFile | ForEach-Object {
      $ComputerName = $_
      Get-ChildItem "\\$_\$($LocalFolder.Replace(':', '$'))" -Recurse |
            Where-Object {$_.Length -gt $FileSize} |
            Select-Object -Property `
                  @{n="ComputerName"; e={$ComputerName}},
                  FullName,
                  @{n="SizeMB"; e={[math]::Round($_.Length / 1MB, 3)}}
} | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path $ResultFile

Also this seems wrong.

Get-ChildItem "\\$_\$($LocalFolder.Replace(':', '$'))" -Recurse

Open in new window

Should it be this instead? Granted, I have not run your script so just running it over by eye.

Get-ChildItem "\\$_\$($LocalFolder.Replace('$', '$'))" -Recurse

I think I recognize my handiwork there. You don't get the full name because the original version of the script wasn't meant to search recursively.
$ServerFile = 'C:\Temp\Servers.txt'
$LocalFolder = 'F:\Lotus\Domino\Data'
$FileSize = 50 * 1GB
$ResultFile = 'C:\Temp\FileSize.csv'
Get-Content $ServerFile | % {
	$ComputerName = $_
	$SearchRoot = "\\$_\$($LocalFolder.Replace(':', '$'))"
	Get-ChildItem $SearchRoot -Recurse |
		Where-Object {$_.Length -gt $FileSize} |
		Select-Object -Property `
			@{n="ComputerName"; e={$ComputerName}},
			@{n="Name"; e={$_.FullName.Replace($SearchRoot, $LocalFolder)}},
			@{n="SizeMB"; e={[math]::Round($_.Length / 1MB, 3)}}
} | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path $ResultFile
