Powershell to move files with a "Date Modified" date more recent than 06/01/2016

Hi, this is actually a 2 part question, although I am sure the first one can be answered extremely easily.

1. How can I get a list of all files within a folder on a server? (I would like to know how to do this for one specific folder as well as for all sub-folders, with the output showing the directory that the file is in)

2. How can I move all .tif files within a folder that have a "Date Modified" date more recent than 06/01/2016 to a separate folder? This also is on a server.

Thanks!

1a. Within a folder:
Get-ChildItem C:\Windows

Open in new window


1b. Within a folder and subfolders:
Get-ChildItem C:\Windows -Recurse

Open in new window


The most important command in PS:
Get-Help <Cmdlet>

2. Move the items; the Move-Item is in test mode and will only display what it would do, but not actually move anything. Remove the -WhatIf argument to run it for real.
$NewerThan = Get-Date -Date "06/01/2016"
Get-ChildItem C:\Temp -Filter *.tif -Recurse | ? {$_.LastWriteTime -ge $NewerThan} | Move-Item -Destination D:\Target -WhatIf

Oh, and in case you want the listing in table format, for example with LastWriteTime:
Get-ChildItem C:\Temp | Select FullName, LastWriteTime

Open in new window

And to write that to a file:
Get-ChildItem C:\Temp | Select FullName, LastWriteTime | Export-Csv C:\Temp\DirectoryList.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window

To get a list of the properties you can select for an object, get an object of interest and pipe it to Get-Member:
Get-Item C:\Windows\notepad.exe | Get-Member

Open in new window
