Just Getting Specific Files in PoSh–#SQLNewBlogger

,

Another post for me that is simple and hopefully serves as an example for people trying to get blogging as #SQLNewBloggers.

Just a quick one today, but a tip I hope I remember. While working on a script, I wanted to just get backup files in PoSh. I tried this:

Get-ChildItem -Path $BackupPath -File -Include *.bak

That got me this:

Nothing.

Why not? Apparently, you need the –Recurse parameter, even though there are no subdirectories in this folder. A bug, IMHO, but who knows. In any case, adding the parameter makes things work. Thanks, SO.

SQLNewBlogger

This was a quick 5 minute thing. After researching and testing for 10 minutes, and finding the solution, I wrote this up.

You could do that with anything you get working.
