Summary: The Scripting Wife reveals the top five Windows PowerShell scripts from the Script Repository for 2013.

Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. The Scripting Wife is here again today to tell us the five most popular scripts that were downloaded from the Script Center Repository in 2013.

Hello all. I have taken the time to gather more stats for you. Here are the top five most popular scripts that were downloaded from the Script Center Repository in 2013:

  1. Get Active Directory User Last Logon
    This script provides Active Directory administrators with the ability to quickly and easily identify the exact last log-on date and time for a user account.

  2. Simple PowerShell function to send email
    This is a simple Windows PowerShell function that sends email. There are a series of variables (for example, $subject) that can be used as parameters.

  3. Exchange 2010 Public Folder Replication Report
    This script will generate a report of the Exchange Server 2010 public folder environment and replication status. It returns the replication status of each folder and general information, such as the total size and count of Public Folders and Top 10 Largest Folders.

  4. Get-RemoteProgram Get list of installed programs on remote or local computer
    This script generates a list by querying the registry and returning the installed programs of a local or remote computer.

  5. Create bulk AD User and mailbox from CSV file
    This script creates an Active Directory account from a CSV file and the Exchange Server 2010 mailbox.

Thanks, all!
