DESCRIPTION

The Get-DedupJob returns status and information for currently running or queued deduplication jobs.

To run this cmdlet, you must start Windows PowerShell® with the Run as administrator option.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get information for jobs for specified volumes

PS C:\> Get-DedupJob -Volume "D:","F:"

This command gets status and information for currently running or queued deduplication jobs for the D: and F: volumes.

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.
