Returns information on supported partition sizes for the specified Disk object.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByNumber
Get-PartitionSupportedSize [[-DiskNumber] <UInt32[]> ] [[-PartitionNumber] <UInt32[]> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByDriveLetter
Get-PartitionSupportedSize [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-DriveLetter <Char[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ById
Get-PartitionSupportedSize [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-DiskId <String[]> ] [-Offset <UInt64[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: InputObject (cdxml)
Get-PartitionSupportedSize -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-PartitionSupportedSizes cmdlet returns information on supported partition sizes for the specified Disk object.

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.

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_Partition

    You can pipe a Partition object to the InputObject parameter.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • System.UInt64

Notes

  • The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
