PowerTip: Use PowerShell to Find Files Newer than a Date

Doctor Scripto

Summary: Use the Windows PowerShell to see if a file exists more recent than a certain date.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to see if a file more recent than a specific date exists in a folder?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Test-Path cmdlet, specify the folder, and use the –NewerThan parameter.
           The cmdlet expects a date in accordance with regional settings, for example:

PS C:\> Test-Path c:\fso -NewerThan 3/30/15


PS C:\> Test-Path c:\fso -NewerThan 4/3/15
