Need a PS script

Need a PS script

Need a PS script

Hello all,

I am in dire need of what I assume is a fairly simple powershell script. I have a directory wth many subdirectories. I need to:

Find any directory name converted
Move all files found within the converted directory up one directory
Delete the converted directory
Delete *.cal files from with the same directory that the converted files were moved to

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


RE: Need a PS script


Most of us are willing to assist you with fixing logic/syntax, but I don't know if anyone is going to want to write the script for you. We've all been where you are. But you need to give it a shot, so you can learn how to do it. Then come back with something we can work from/with if you need additional assistance.

Don't get discouraged.

Here's something to help get you started:

CODE -->

$start_dir = "C:\"
$search_folder = "converted"

## Search for folders 
$folders = Get-ChildItem $start_dir -Recurse | where {$_.PSIsContainer -AND $_.name -eq $search_folder} | Select-Object FullName

## Display search results

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
