I use PowerShell to check last edit date on files in folder, but it can take a while to scan a folder sometimes. I was wondering if there was a way to run the task in parallel streams using jobs or something like that. Is that possible?

$path = \\server\share
Get-ChildItem -File -Recurse -Force -Path $path |select fullname, lastwritetime |sort lastwritetime -Descending |select -First 20 |Ft
