This is a simple report to tell you the status of your SQL Server backups.
This was a fun little script I threw together after a particular conversation came up at Spiceworks. If you’ve worked with PowerShell long you’ve used Get-Content to read a file. 99% of the time, it’s fine and you just continue on with life. This blog post is about that 1% when Get-Content is SLOW. The .NET IO.Streamreader is where people turn to speed things up so I decided to create a function around it that worked much like Get-Content does. This is it’s story.
