    Hello – I have a powershell script that will delete all folders and subfolders named IE and it's contents but I want to add some logging.

    I launch Powershell change the the root of the directory and then I run the below command line.
    get-childitem .\IE *.* -recurse -Hidden | Remove-Item -Force -Confirm

    I would like to output the results of the script to a csv file.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Because Remove-Item lacks a -PassThru switch, you can't do this with a one-liner.

    You could put Tee-Object between them, if you don't need a CSV specifically?
