Updated: October 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Server 2012 R2

Expand-DedupFile

Expands an optimized file into its original location.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ExpandFile2
Expand-DedupFile [-Path] <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Expand-DedupFile cmdlet expands an optimized file into its original location. You may need to expand optimized files because of compatibility with applications or other requirements.

Ensure that there is enough space on the volume to store the expanded file. If you do not have enough disk space, the cmdlet attempts to expand the file, and then informs you when it is unable to finish the operation. If you attempt to restore a file that is not optimized, the cmdlet notifies you of the error.

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. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
