Does anyone know of a way to visualize (via a GUI) Get-ChildItem output? I'm working on a couple scripts that will build up a listing of all the files on our NAS, compare it with the last run, and spit out just the files that have changed but I'm having a hard time visualizing the data and have to run custom | where-object {} every time we want a report on the data.

If your question is pertaining more toward getting GUI output, a quick and dirty method is to pipe to Out-GridView. It will launch in a WPF window.

I was looking for more of a graph than a table. – Scott Keck-Warren Dec 16 '11 at 19:14
