I'm trying to use gci on the results of an earlier gci.
Let me explain myself.
I have to search and delete certain files in the homefolders of users.
So I did first $users = gci c:\homefolders -name to get all the names off the userdirs. After this I want to use gci $users\specificdir or something but I cant find out if I have to use foreach command for that. I'm stuck.
I'm also using this construction to don't overload the server
$users, in that case, is a collection of File and/or Folder objects. You're passing those to the -Path parameter of GCI, which does not accept File/Folder objects.
You probably meant...
$users = Get-ChildItem c:\homefolders -Folder | Select -Expand Name
Or something along those lines, so that $users contains only folder names as String objects. I'm not certain the above is 100% what you're after as I'm not 100% clear on what you're doing, but hopefully this can help you.
