PowerTip: Get Time Difference between Dates with PowerShell

Doctor Scripto

Summary: Use New-TimeSpan to produce the time difference between two dates.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question I know I can subtract dates, but is there a Windows PoweShell cmdlet to show me the time difference between dates?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use New-TimeSpan and supply the information!
          For example, to show the difference between today and the upcoming New Year:


$EndDate=[datetime]”01/01/2014 00:00”

NEW-TIMESPAN –Start $StartDate –End $EndDate
