Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to close a number of SMB file shares that I have open?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Open the Windows PowerShell console with admin rights, and
          use the Close-SMBOpenFile function:

Close-SmbOpenFile

To avoid prompting, use the –Force parameter:

Close-SmbOpenFile -Force
