PowerShell get filename with extension


#=======================================

$Folder_file_path="D:\test_folder\"
$initCount=0

[array]$data_files = Get-ChildItem $Folder_file_path  #get all items and save to array

  $i_count=$data_files.count  #count items on the array and assign to $i_count variable

  Write-Host $initCount   #optional to display count value

#if statement to process if files are found


if($data_files.count -gt 0){



#increment for loop from zero to last index of the array
 for  ($initCount; $initCount -lt $i_count; $initCount++ ) { 

       #Write-Host "$($data_files.Count) Files found in folder!"

       Write-Host   ($data_files[$initCount].name ) #display the filename with the extension

        Write-Output  ($data_files[$initCount].name ) >> d:\Files_list.txt # write data to a text file; ">>" append operator since for loop is used

 }


}else{


    Write-Host No files in the folder!
}


#=======================================

Change the script folder path to the desired location.

The script above will also list the folder names inside the specified path; if need to get just the filenames then the script needs to be tweaked a little bit.

Script tested on PowerShell version 4.0

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.
