Thanks in advance Fellas! February 5, 2016 at 8:13 am #34920 Wilfredo PerezParticipant Does it have to be a txt file. Can it be a csv file? February 5, 2016 at 8:24 am #34921 37mmParticipant No it doesn't have to a txt file. Now that I think of it, a csv would fix my issue! I don't think it will give me the full path of the file though.

Try something like this: (Get-ChildItem c:\ -Recurse).FullName | export-CSV c:\test.csv Also this one: Get-ChildItem c:\ -Recurse | out-file C:\Test\file.txt February 5, 2016 at 8:51 am #34924 37mmParticipant Thank you!
