Thanks, js. We’ve chatted about that (see discussion above). A post was mentioned earlier where using cmd.exe could be a solution, but it can’t see hidden folders, unless you choose to have them unhidden. I was just pointing that out in my comment. You have any thoughts on how to filter out junction points or other methods of getting what VT is trying to produce?
BTW, VT, if you’re wanting a good way to learn the basics, and more advanced stuff, of powershell, I would highly recommend the following. The books are co-authored by Don Jones and Jeffrey Hicks who happen to run this site. If you buy the physical books (pbooks as they call them), you also get the digital copies free in several forms (pdf, kindle, etc…)
-Learn Windows PowerShell In A Month Of Lunches (Chapter 9 is especially awesome)

Thanks Kevyn…I tried that script & its freezing my system as well, out of the file size isn’t increasing. I am not planning to delete paging file…but proactively move to another drive if / when needed. I am also trying to modify that script to see if I can get the desired result. I will update once I have it. You can also let me if you can find it.
Thanks for those resources, I read -Learn Windows PowerShell In A Month Of Lunches by Don Jones and Jeffrey Hicks. I will check other resources you provided…I really appreciate it.
