SSD or HDD Powershell Audit

Hardware Components

Find SSD or HDD Details from Computers with Powershell in Your Network

Lansweeper always scans drive information from Windows computers with great details like the model, size, type, filesystem and more. One particular data point has been more difficult to accurately retrieve and that is the type of drive. With SSD drives becoming the standard, knowing which devices or servers are using which type of drive is important in order to know what kind of storage is installed.

This report is based on the use case covered in the Pro Tips #16 blog post. It requires configuration before it can be used effectively.

The report below uses data from registry keys mentioned in the Pro Tips #16 blog post and matches it with the model information that Lansweeper scans by default. If a match is found, the storage type is listed as discovered with PowerShell.
