Altough a very basic problem, this still seems beyond me:
Get-ChildItem -Force -path d:
Mode LastWriteTime Length Name
—- ————- —— —
d–hs 04.02.2013 11:48 $RECYCLE.BIN
d—- 04.02.2013 12:53 f1
d—- 04.02.2013 12:53 f2
d–hs 20.08.2012 13:40 System Volume Information
d—- 04.02.2013 11:47 vImages
Everything as expected here. Now I want to exclude the directory "vImages"
Get-ChildItem -Force -path d: -exclude vImages
Nothing gets returned. I could use the -path d:* option with an asterisk but then it would display the contents of the folders, which is not what I want.
My question is, why does Get-ChildItem return nothing when used in conjunction with the exclude parameter?
Thanks for your help.
