Get file metadata from PowerShell script

In this post, I will show you how to get a file’s metadata inside the Windows system using a PowerShell script.

A file’s metadata can have the name, size, creation date, file format, directory the file is located, etc.

This information can be important if you are working with photos for example, where you can store the photos in a database with your information.

So first, we must download the powershell script that has the function to access this information from a file through the link below.

After downloading the PS1 file (powershell script), we can use the script to get the metadata for each file within a previously defined directory.

The scripts for this post can be found on my Github (@guimatheus92).
