Copy-ItemProperty - Powershell 1.0 CmdLet
Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.
More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.
Description Copy a property along with it's value Usage Options -path string The items to copy, Wildcards are permitted. -literalPath string Like Path above, only the value is used exactly as typed. No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes any escape characters then enclose the path in single quotation marks. -destination string Where the items are to be copied. -name string The name of the property to copy. -force Override restrictions that prevent the command from succeeding, apart from security settings. e.g. Force will create file path directories or override a files read-only attribute, but will not change file permissions. -include string Copy only the specified items from the Path. e.g. "May*" -exclude string Omits the specified items from the Path e.g. "*SS64*" -filter string A filter in the provider's format or language. The exact syntax of the filter (wildcard support etc) depends on the provider. Filters are more efficient than -include/-exclude, because the provider applies the filter when retrieving the objects, rather than having PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved. -credential PSCredential Uses a credential to validate access to the file. Credential represents a user-name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01", or a PSCredential object, such as the one retrieved using Get-Credential. This parameter appears, but it is not yet supported in any PowerShell core cmdlets or providers. -passThru Pass the object through the pipeline. -whatIf Describe what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command. -confirm Prompt for confirmation before executing the command. CommonParameters: -Verbose, -Debug,-ErrorAction,-ErrorVariable, -OutVariable. Example(s) Copy the property named updateMgr from HKLM\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run to HKLM\Windows\CurrentVersion\Backup PS C:\>copy-itemproperty -path HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run -destination HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Backup -name updateMgr
