I could count everything the 1st, 2nd and 3rd level sub folders ($sub) and subtract the 1st level ($top) by using: $top = (Get-ChildItem -Path "C:\Program Files" | Measure-Object).Count $sub = (Get-ChildItem -Path "C:\Program Files" -Recurse | Measure-Object).Count $tot = $sub - $top but how would I ignore the 3rd level sub folders?

Try this: (Get-ChildItem -Path 'C:\Program Files\*\*' -Directory).Count September 17, 2014 at 7:17 am #18876 adi dumitrasParticipant I needed something like this once too.
