I’m really new to writing my own PS scripts and I’ve run into an issue that I can’t seem to Google my way out of.
I work with video surveillance systems and the software that we use organizes it’s archive storage with localized folder names. The actual name of a folder looks like a random string of 36 letters and numbers, but there’s a desktop.ini folder that specifies a more “friendly” name. My problem is that I need PS to be able to work with the friendly names instead of the real names: I’m using it to check for the oldest folder and knowing that b696cafc-f47c-4e60-bc64-79d6b7b6ff3b is 45 days old is great, but that’s not the name that Explorer sees when I log in to check.
Can this be done or am I out of luck? Thanks.
