PowerShell script to get volume information from Windows devices

Managing storage volume on Windows devices in an organization is crucial for resource utilization. Fetching information about storage volumes like health status, size used, etc., facilitates efficient resource monitoring with the help of a detailed overview of the device’s storage. IT administrators can use the PowerShell script to get volume information on Windows devices. With Hexnode’s Execute Custom Script remote action, IT admins can execute the PowerShell script to get the information about volume on Windows devices.


The sample scripts provided below are adapted from third-party open-source sites.

The above PowerShell script uses the Get-Volume command to fetch the information on all the volumes present on the device.

DriveLetter: The letter assigned to the volume used as a reference for accessing the volume within the Windows operating system.

FriendlyName: Friendly name of the volume if there is any. If there is no name set it will display the output as empty.

FileSystemType: The type of file system used on the volume determines how data is stored, organized, and accessed. (e.g., NTFS-New Technology File System, FAT32-File Allocation Table 32, and exFAT-Extended File Allocation Table).

HealthStatus: Provides information about the overall health condition of the volume, indicating whether any issues or errors have been detected.

OperationalStatus: The operational status of the volume, such as whether it’s online or offline.
