PowerTip: Use PowerShell to Get a List of All Volumes

Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to get a list of all volume drive letters and free space available.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to list all the drive letters and free space available?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use Get-WMIObject and query win32_logicaldisk to show all drive letters including
          network drives and CD ROMs:

GET-WMIOBJECT win32_logicaldisk

To view this as a table, add Format-Table:

GET-WMIOBJECT win32_logicaldisk | FORMAT-TABLE

    Title is misleading if you have volumes that are mounted as mountpoints. Devil in the details. Volumes <> logical disks.
    The correct answer is get-wmiobject win32_volume
