Disk Inventory with PowerShell

Almost every time I write a PowerShell script, tool, or module it is to scratch an itch that I have. The Get-DiskInventory script is not new to me, but I have recently published because I saw others needed the same type of tool.

Get-DiskInventory gets a list of disk (really volumes) on a local or remote computer and displays their drive letter, name, free space, capacity, used space, and % free. While new operating systems have Get-Volume, sometimes you need a tool to work with those “legacy” operating systems such as Windows Server 2008 R2.

Get-DiskInventory leverages Get-WmiObject to gather the necessary information and is compatible across all versions of Windows client and server.
