    Powershell was started without "Run as administrator".

  2. Win 8.1 User says:

    Did not select "Run as Administrator" when opening the Powershell prompt.
    Selected "Run as Adminsitrator" and it gave a logon prompt?

    C’mon guys… Is it difficult???

    "I ask only one thing: Please do not post any answers to these problems until next week. Please do not spoil the fun for your fellow scripters!"

  4. WIN 8.1 User says:

    Sorry, I missed the previous blog entry where it explicitly said don’t answer till next week

  5. Vandrey Trindade says:

    That’s ok… just don’t do it again =p

    Tip for the blog: Write that warning on every problem you post =]

  6. Jason Colotario says:

    Get-Disk requires administrator level privileges. After gaining Admin privileges, you will have no problem extracting information using the Get-Disk cmdlet.

    You need a way to remind me to come back in a week to look up the answer 🙂
