This morning, I copied a directory from my local, networked drive to temp folder for testing. When I ran the script, this error appeared. Get-Content : Cannot find path 'C:\users\xxxxx\desktop\cgc\Automatic_Post-Call_Survey_-_BC,_CC.txt' because it does no t exist. At C:\users\xxxxx\desktop\cgc\testcountexcl1.ps1:55 char:12 + Get-Content < <<< $txtfile | Get-WordCount -Exclude (Get-Content c:\temp\exclude.txt) | select -First 15 + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (C:\users\xxxxx...ey_-_BC,_CC.txt:String) [Get-Content], ItemNotFoundEx ception + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PathNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetContentCommand This would be expected with the move...PS can't find the path referenced...but I made the following change prior to running the script (old commented out above the new): $input = Get-Content c:\temp\wordCount.txt < # $inpath = "C:\users\xxxxx\desktop\cgc\tx" #> $inpath = "C:\temp\tx" $srcfiles = Get-ChildItem $inpath -filter "*.txt" $notPermittedWords = Get-Content c:\temp\exclude.txt My first inkling is that there's some kind of cache holding my $inpath variable from my last run...but have not been able to find out if that's expected PowerShell behavior. Am I misinterpreting the error or the solution? How do I flush the cache or whatever varables may be stored in memory?
