Get-StorageAdvancedProperty

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/8/2017

SYNOPSIS

Gets the advanced properties on a storage device.

SYNTAX

Get-StorageAdvancedProperty -PhysicalDisk <CimInstance> [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-StorageAdvancedProperty cmdlet gets the advanced properties of a storage device. For example, Get-PhysicalDisk gets the most commonly used attributes of a physical disk such as CanPool. To get the cache (IsDeviceCacheEnabled) and power protection (IsPowerProtected) settings for a physical disk, you can pass a PhysicalDisk object to the Get-StorageAdvancedProperty cmdlet.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get advanced storage properties of a physical disk

PS C:\>Get-PhysicalDisk | Get-StorageAdvancedProperty
FriendlyName          SerialNumber    IsPowerProtected IsDeviceCacheEnabled
------------          ------------    ---------------- --------------------
MTFDWSC128MAM-1J1     1247091D111W                True                False
WDC WD10EZWC-60ZF5A0  WD-WCC1S1822719             True                False
WDC WD10EZWC-60ZF5A0  WD-WCC1S1634655             True                False

This command uses the Get-PhysicalDisk cmdlet to get all physical disks, and uses the pipeline operator to pass them to Get-StorageAdvancedProperty to get the advanced storage properties IsPowerProtected and IsDeviceCacheEnabled for the physical disks.

Example 2: Get advanced storage properties for the first physical disk in an array

PS C:\>Get-StorageAdvancedProperty -PhysicalDisk (Get-PhysicalDisk)[0]
FriendlyName          SerialNumber    IsPowerProtected IsDeviceCacheEnabled
------------          ------------    ---------------- --------------------
MTFDWSC128MAM-1J1     1247091D111W                True                False

This command gets the advanced storage properties IsPowerProtected and IsDeviceCacheEnabled for the first PhysicalDisk object in the array of returned physical disks.
