Get-HardlinkInfo Script fails with OverflowException

by mowfax at 2013-03-04 16:28:12


I need a function to find out if an NTFS file has hardlink siblings and if yes, which ones.
There’s already a script for that, I found it here:

Problem is that I get this Error when using it:

Ausnahme beim Aufrufen von “GetFileSiblingHardLinks” mit 1 Argument(en): "Die arithmetische Operation hat einen Ãœberlauf verursacht."
In D:\testfiles\pshell_script\Get-HardlinkInfo.ps1:138 Zeichen:3
+ $links = [HardLinkEnumerator.Kernel32Api]::GetFileSiblingHardLinks($filepath)
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:slight_smile: [], MethodInvocationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : OverflowException

(sorry for the german description, I don’t know how to get pshell to give me english errors)

If I use the switch “-count” I get a number and no error. However if I only give a -filepath, it gives me the error. Doesn’t matter if I also add the parameter “-all” on top of it.
My guess is that the error lies within the typedef stuff.

If there is a completely other solution to get to my goal in finding hardlinks with pshell that’s fine, too.
Thanks in advance…

Can you translate the error? I’ve no idea what it means.

Google Translate says this means ‘Arithmetic Operation resulted in an overflow’.

Hope that helps
