Detailed Description

The Get-FileStorageTier cmdlet gets all the files assigned to a storage tier on a tiered volume stored on a tiered storage space, and the status of each file. A file that you assign to a storage tier is called a pinned file. The possible status values are the following:

-- Not on tier
-- Completely on tier
-- Partially on tier

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet.
