Display a list of volumes on a remote computer

Get-WmiObject is one of the Windows PowerShell cmdlets that can act on a remote computer by using the -ComputerName parameter. You can use the Get-WmiObject cmdlet to quickly display a list of volumes on a remote computer. For example, if the name of the remote computer is SEA-SRV-01 then you could type the following command from the Windows PowerShell command shell:

Get-WmiObject Win32_LogicalDisk -ComputerName SEA-SRV-01 | Format-Table

The results will be formatted like this:

DeviceID    DriveType    ProviderName    FreeSpace    Size    VolumeName

You can also abbreviate the above command like this:

gwmi Win32_LogicalDisk –cn SEA-SRV-01 | ft
