Will executing New-Item command deletes the contents/folders if it exists already

Will executing New-Item command deletes the contents/folders if it exists already.

The script is New-Item “$HOME\Desktop” -Name “foldername” -ItemType “directory” -Force

hi Renjith,

The documentation for this command talks about this:
New-Item Documentation

In short - yes it will overwrite the file if it already exists, using the -Force parameter does this.

What you might want to do is have some error handling around if the file already exits with Test-Path and then decide from that output if you use New-Item or Add-Content
