Converting the FileSystemObject's CreateFolder Method


Windows PowerShell


Definition: Creates a new folder.

CreateFolder


You can create a folder with the New-Item cmdlet. This example creates a new folder named temp2 as a subfolder of the C:\Scripts folder.


New-Item -path c:\scripts\ -name temp2 -type directory


Notice we specified the -type parameter with a value of directory. This tells New-Item we’re creating a folder and not a file.

If the folder already exists you’ll receive an error. To create the folder even if it already exists, use the -force parameter:


New-Item -path c:\scripts\ -name temp2 -type directory -force


You can also use the mkdir alias, but if the folder exists you’ll receive an error message, with no way to override that:


mkdir c:\scripts\temp2
