Powershell get-childitem and date modified

19 April,2017 by Jack Vamvas

Question: I can list out the files of a directory using Powershell get-childitem , but how can I display the Windows sdirectory “date modified” column as part of the recordset returned by get-childitem?

The code I’m using is :

Get-ChildItem -path "Y:\myfolder"| select name

 

Answer: The Powershell code you’ve presented just needs to be extended by adding another select item : lastwritetime

 

Get-ChildItem -path "Y:\myfolder"| select name,lastwrite

 

To sort by lastwritetime add a sort-object filter

Get-ChildItem -path "Y:\myfolder"| select name,lastwritetime | sort-object -property lastwritetime

 

To export the results to a CSV you can extent the powershell code by adding the Export-CSV cmdlet

Get-ChildItem -path "Y:\myfolder"| select name,lastwritetime | sort-object -property lastwritetime| Export-CSV -notype Y:\myfile.csv
