Converting the FileSystemObject's SerialNumber Property

Windows PowerShell

Definition: Returns the serial number used to uniquely identify a disk volume.


Well, it looks like the easiest way to do this is to simply use the FileSystemObject:

$a = New-Object -ComObject Scripting.FileSystemObject
$d = $a.GetDrive("C:\")

We start by using the New-Object cmdlet to get ahold of the FileSystemObject. Notice that we used the -ComObject parameter. We then call the GetDrive method to retrieve the drive we’re interested in. At that point all we need to do is display the SerialNumber property.

See conversions of other FileSystemObject methods and properties.
