Hi
I am trying to create an agent job that looks for a file to exist and file if the file is not fount. I am using a try\catch block but the job will not fail. Any ideas?

try {
Get-Item -Path E:\Migration Files\myfile.txt -ErrorAction Stop
} catch {
# File Does Not Exist
}

i've used Test-Path to see if files or folders exist, and make a decision from there to do my logic; create files, process files, copy them or whatever.


#the detail file of this database:
$filename = $dir + $NiceServerName + '\'
if (!(Test-Path -path $filename))
{
New-Item $filename -type directory
}

Thanks
I didn't want to add any other logic to the script just have the job step fail if the file is present. Someone suggested just using the Get-item by itself and it did the trick.
Get-Item -Path E:\Migration Files\myfile.txt -ErrorAction Stop
Go
