Get Volume IDs (Part 2)

by Oct 31, 2022

In Windows 10 and better, you can use Get-Volume to get volume IDs and other information about your drives:

 
PS> Get-Volume

DriveLetter FriendlyName FileSystemType DriveType HealthStatus OperationalStatus SizeRemaining      Size
----------- ------------ -------------- --------- ------------ ----------------- -------------      ----
            WINRETOOLS   NTFS           Fixed     Healthy      OK                    315.58 MB    990 MB
C           OS           NTFS           Fixed     Healthy      OK                    154.79 GB 938.04 GB
            Image        NTFS           Fixed     Healthy      OK                    107.91 MB   12.8 GB
            DELLSUPPORT  NTFS           Fixed     Healthy      OK                    354.46 MB   1.28 GB
 

Note though that you will initially only see a fraction of available information. Pipe the data to Select-Object to see all information, including volume IDs:

Get-Volume | Select-Object -Property *

Here is an example:

 
PS> Get-Volume | Select-Object -Property DriveLetter, FileSystemLabel, Size, Path

DriveLetter FileSystemLabel          Size Path
----------- ---------------          ---- ----
            WINRETOOLS         1038086144 \\?\Volume{733298ae-3d76-4f5f-acc4-50fdca0c6401}\
C           OS              1007210721280 \\?\Volume{861c48b0-d434-48d3-995a-0573c1336eb7}\
            Image             13739487232 \\?\Volume{9dc0ed9d-86fd-4cd5-9ed8-3249f57720ad}\
