    I'm trying to find a good way to search a directory and its sub folders for any files that have a file extension longer than x amount. I'm not finding any good answers on the best way to do this, any ideas?

    Thank You!

    Hey mate,

    Something like this should do the trick.

    Get-ChildItem C:\Folder -Recurse -File | Where-Object {$_.Extension.Length -gt 2}

    Change the int (2) to whatever you require.

    Only thing I'd suggest is making the comparison value a variable then your code is more versatile

    $test = 3
    Get-ChildItem C:\Folder -Recurse -File | Where-Object {$_.Extension.Length -ge $test}

    You might want to consider using -ge if you want to include that specific length
