Related to the previous article, as part of creating the files, I need to create a separate folder as well, so that the generated reports will be stored in the folder. To make sure that the folder is already available, and if not, create a new folder, a simple two liner script will be sufficient. Though it is too small, wanted to share with the community.

 $LogTime = Get-Date -Format yyyy-MM-dd_hh-mm
 ################# Set the Current Path as Execution Path ####################
 $scriptBase = split-path $SCRIPT:MyInvocation.MyCommand.Path -parent
 Set-Location $scriptBase
 ############# set the Error Preference ################
 $ErrorActionPreference = "Stop"
 # Create Log File Folder
 if(!(TEST-PATH ".\Logs-$LogTime")) 
 {
    NEW-ITEM ".\Logs-$LogTime" -type Directory
 }
 

Happy Coding,

Sathish Nadarajan.
