How to get the size of the file using Get-ItemProperty in powershell!

(Dinesh) #1

Hi,

I have a file having data around 5GB. I tried to get size of the file using get-content $path2 | Measure-Object method. But its taking more time as Get-Content cmdlet is present.

Is there method to get the size of this kind of file very quickly. I would like to get the file size using Properties of a file using Get-ItemProperty.

Can anyone suggest me on this,

Thanks,
Dinesh
