Path name size

I am trying to write a script to scan all path names for every file in the drive and find ones that are larger than 512 and output the results to a text file. I'm new to powershell and lost. All I have now is printing all paths from a drive and outputting this to a text file then cut and past into excel and use LEN(a1,b1,c1.....) and do a sort. I would like to just have the script only display the ones over 512. Any advice? Thanks

RE: Path name size

I'm sure there's a better way to do it, but see where this leads you


gci *.txt | foreach {$n = $_.FullName; if ($n.Length -gt 20) {write-host "$n  $($n.Length)"}}
