I’m going to be creating, using and discarding a number of VHDs for my diskpart and PowerShell series. When I have a number of them mounted I want a quick way to dismount them. Assuming I consistently keep them in the same folder then this very nicely
Get-ChildItem -Path C:\test\ -Filter *.vhdx | Dismount-VHD
Why does it work?
Because Get-ChildItem emits System.IO.FileInfo objects that have a Path property and Dismount-VHD accepts pipeline input for the Path of the VHD to dismount:
Specifies one or more virtual hard disk files for which the corresponding virtual hard disks are to be dismounted.
Default value none
Accept pipeline input? true (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters? false
